iso-codes 4.5.0 Various ISO standards
This package provides lists of various ISO standards (e.g. country, language, language scripts, and currency names) in one place, rather than repeated in many programs throughout the system.
Currently there are lists of languages and countries embedded in several different programs, which leads to dozens of lists of 200 languages, translated into more than 30 languages... not very efficient.
With this package, we create a single "gettext domain" for every supported ISO standard which contains the translations of that domain. It is easy for a programmer to re-use those translations instead of maintaining their own translation infrastructure. Moreover, the programmer does not need to follow changes in the ISO standard and will not work with outdated information.
