Internationalization Options in AngularJS and Salesforce: Part 1 – Localization

An ISV partner recently asked us what their options were for performing internationalization (language translations, locale formatting, time zones, etc.) within a JavaScript Framework – specifically angularJS. They were looking to increase their app’s performance but did not want to give up all the “goodness” that they receive by using Visualforce components (think locale formatting for dates or currency).

Part three will cover Language Conversions. Finally, Part four will cover Currency Conversions.
