Mountain View, CA, July 18, 2011 - The UnicodeĀ® Consortium announced today
the release of a new version of the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository
(Unicode CLDR 2.0.1), providing key building blocks for software to support
the world's languages.

CLDR 2.0.1 is an minor release, with no new translations. It includes about
80 changes that were not ready for CLDR 2.0, including fixes for collation,
number spellout, format consistency, and metazone (timezone) data. It also
now provides descriptions for all of the bcp47 data items in CLDR. For more
information on what else has changed since the 2.0 release, see the CLDR
2.0.1 Release Note.

Unicode CLDR is by far the largest and most extensive standard repository of
locale data. This data is used by a wide spectrum of companies for their
software internationalization and localization: adapting software to the
conventions of different languages for such common software tasks as
formatting of dates, times, time zones, numbers, and currency values;
sorting text; choosing languages or countries by name; transliterating
different alphabets; and many others. Unicode CLDR 2.0.1 is part of the
Unicode locale data project, together with the Unicode Locale Data Markup
Language (LDML: http://unicode.org/reports/tr35/). LDML is an XML format
used for general interchange of locale data, such as in Microsoft's .NET.

For web pages with different views of CLDR data, see

CLDR project (including charts) see http://cldr.unicode.org/.
