This package provides XML files for the following standards: ISO 3166 and ISO 3166-2 (country codes), ISO 639 and ISO 639-3 (language codes), ISO 4217 (currency codes), and ISO 15924 (language script codes). It also provides all their translations in gettext .po form.

This package provides lists of various ISO standards (e.g. country, language, language scripts, and currency names) in one place, rather than repeated in many programs throughout the system.

With this package, we create a single "gettext domain" for every supported ISO standard which contains the translations of that domain. It is easy for a programmer to re-use those translations instead of maintaining their own translation infrastructure. Moreover, the programmer does not need to follow changes in the ISO standard and will not work with outdated information.
