Subject: RE: [wsrp-wsia] [I#140] Internationalization of property and enti tydescriptions

Wouldn't it be simpler then just to have a parameter in the request for
the information saying what the required language is and then let the
Producer return the captions in the appropriate language?

enti ty descriptions

The proposal includes both values and resource names for strings.  The
are specified in the default language.  If that is all the consumer
about, they don't need to process the resources.  If we adopted your 
suggestion, the consumer would be forced to download the values for all 
languages and process the list to find the one they want.  Also, it is 
theoretically possible to reuse resources in our proposal and have a
resource document for the entire entity rather than repeating them in
return of each getEntityPropertyDescription() call.
