This specification defines an optional Java ME API that enables the internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n) of MIDP applications. The API provides locale-specific formatting of common data items such as times, dates and currency amounts, and access to application resources that contain user interface text strings and other localizable items in a compact file format. Text strings can be sorted using locale-specific rules in conjunction with the Unicode(tm) Collation Algorithm.

Nokia Asha

Mobile Internationalization API (JSR-238) is available on Nokia devices starting from the Nokia Asha software platform 1.0.

Series 40

This API is not supported on Series 40 devices. If localization is needed, the developer has to implement the localization him/herself from the ground up.
