    project provides a general XML format for the exchange of language and
    locale data for use in application and system development, and gathers,
    stores, and makes available a common set of language and locale data
    generated in that format.

    CLDR Version 1.3 contained data for 96 languages and 130 territories. In
    addition to new data, CLDR 1.4 will add new structure to support, among
    other things: flexible date & time formatting (including quarters),
