Common Locale Data Repository

The Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR) Project , is a project of the Unicode Consortium to provide extensive locale data. CLDR contains locale-specific information that an operating system will typically provide to applications. This information includes number formats, date, time and currency strings, character classification (lower, upper, printable, and the like), string collation rules and others. For more information, see Behavior Affected by Locales.

All Oracle Solaris 11 locale data is aligned to the CLDR data version 1.9.0, except all variants of the ja_JP, ko_KR, th_TH, zh_CN, zh_HK and zh_TW locales. These locales are based on other sources and do not use the CLDR data.

For more details on CLDR, refer to The Unicode Common Locale Data Repository project site.
