CLDR 1.5 contains data for 135 languages and 149 territories: 394 locales in all. Version 1.5 of the repository contains over 42% more locale data than the previous release,  with over 27,000 new or modified data items entered by over 160 different contributors. New to this release are also BGN transliterations. Major contributors to CLDR 1.5 include Adobe, Apple, Google, IBM, and Sun, plus official representatives from a number of countries. Many other organizations and volunteers around the globe have also made important contributions.

Unicode CLDR 1.5 is part of the Unicode locale data project, together with Unicode Locale Data Markup Language (Unicode LDML 1.5). LDML is an XML format used for general interchange of locale data, such as in Microsoft's .NET. Major features of Unicode LDML 1.5 include new conformance clauses, commonly used time zone translations, revisions for handling bidirectional text (Arabic and Hebrew), language fallbacks, revisions for character fallbacks (used for legacy character encodings), mappings to related language and country codes, and substantial data on language and script usage in different countries.

The data for CLDR is gathered through the CLDR survey tool, which allows organizations and volunteers to contribute locale data. Major improvements to the tool include: enhancements of the appearance, layout, and operation, substantial new documentation, improved testing, new levels of approval and corresponding changes to the voting process for lesser-known languages, and translator forums (and rss).
