Sun Microsystems has announced plans to release the internationalisation source code for its Solaris operating system to open-source software developers.

The open source code will make it easy for developers to create applications running in multiple national languages under Unix and Linux, Sun said. Until now, programmers have had to write separate code for each language they want to support in an application. Sun will release the code Sept. 15 to X.org, the nonprofit consortium for X Window System operating standards.
