April 4, 2012 — The Unicode CLDR Survey Tool is now open for data submissions for Version 22. Organizations and individuals are invited to help contribute translations to this repository.

CLDR provides key software building for the world's languages, with the largest and most extensive standard repository of locale data available. That repository is used in a wide variety of products, including most smart phones.
