See also: Local | Decentralize

The decentralized process of creating local adaptions for things such as operating systems, websites, terminology, languages, etc, to meet local, regional or country requirements. Other examples include the way dates are written, special character sets on keyboards and fonts that use accent or the tilde together with the alphabet.

Localization is the opposite to globalization. It can also more broadly refer to the development and preservation of local culture and specific knowledge.
