German : Java Glossary

*0-9ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ (all)

German
Java lets you write applications for German-speaking users. ResourceBundles let you make your apps multilingual. Layouts adjust box sizes to fit the text. The language code for German is de and the country code for Germany is DE.

The German newsgroup for Java is called  de.comp.lang.java.

Germans tend to use English for most computer terminology e.g. world wide web, beamer, flip chart, overhead projektor, cookie, hardware, website, flag, laptop, notebook, software and upgrade. Swing-related terms such as ActionListener and Collection terms such as HashMap are never translated.

If you have ideas for useful links for this entry, please pass them on. I would appreciate anything that would be useful for converting programs to work in German, or for German-speaking Java programmers. Information for people fluent in German to help them translate English technical terms is most welcome.
