Can't help much, just a small clarification that might help you

I18n (note upper-case i) is wiki notation for i18n, which means
"internationalisation"[1], do not confuse that with l18n (note the 
lower-case L), which doesn't mean anything or l10n (note the lower-case 
L), which means "localisation"[2].
