About the Author
Manfred Kiefer is a Globalization Specialist for SAS Institute Inc., where he works with developers and testers around the world. His main areas of expertise are software localization and internationalization. As a result, he has a broad view of the spectrum of SAS products and solutions on different platforms, including Windows, UNIX, and z/OS. A speaker at international SAS conferences, Kiefer has written several white papers to explain the "whys" and "hows" of internationalization. Last but not least, he has made significant contributions to the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR). A SAS user for more than twenty years, Kiefer studied languages and history at Mannheim University, Germany.
"I am greatly impressed by the depth and breadth of the author's knowledge even about the history of writing systems, scripts, and languages. There is a vast amount of interesting and useful information in this book." -- John Kohl, "author of The Global English Style Guide: Writing Clear, Translatable Documentation for a Global Market"
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The introduction about the glyphs, characters, encoding, and other cultural characteristics, is maybe the part I liked the most, because it gave me some background info I was lacking.
In other sections, there is a clear emphasis on SAS usage : how encoding work in the different versions of SAS, troubleshooting tips, references, etc. (The book already helped me last week to solve a very specific encoding problem ). I like the last words of the author about the fact information stored on clay is still readable, while data stored on a modern tablet will be inaccessible in a few years.
