Does anyone know what the difference is between website globalisation and website localisation? As far as I'm concerned these are the same thing, or am I wrong?

Many thanks, Lee.

the are different.

globalization means it is targeted and available worldwide. Localization means that the site is targeted to specific regions.

For example:
a widget.com can be include information that is applicable worldwide. That .com may have a link to a localized version such as widget.co.uk.
