Equipping a website or web application to run in multiple languages has traditionally involved retrofitting back-end systems and refactoring software to support localization. This can be an extremely expensive and time-consuming process, especially for systems that were not designed with this in mind. New approaches utilizing client-side technology, Javascript in particular, dramatically simplify this process, reduce costs and enable localization to be done in parallel with software development and content production.
