kde-i18n or kde-l10n?


I've searched quite a lot on what to use on KDE but I still don't quite understand the difference between i18n and the l10n translations for KDE. What is the best to use and what is the difference between localization and Internationalization?

Regards

As I understand it, localization means having a working environment in your own language; translated menus, etc. Internationalization means being able to use another language from within your own language environment; i.e. multilingual support.
