CLDR 1.6 contains data for 137 languages and 140 territories: 374 locales in all. Version 1.6 of the repository contains over 32% more locale data than the previous release,  with nearly 24,000 new or modified data items entered by over 220 different contributors.

Major contributors to CLDR 1.6 include Adobe, Apple, Google, IBM, and Sun, plus official representatives from a number of countries. Many other organizations and volunteers around the globe, including Gnome, Kotoistus, LISA, OpenOffice, and Utilika, have also made important contributions. The data for CLDR is gathered through the CLDR survey tool, which allows organizations and volunteers to contribute, compare, and vet locale data. For web pages with different views of CLDR data, see http://unicode.org/cldr/charts.html.

Unicode CLDR 1.6 is part of the Unicode locale data project, together with the Unicode Locale Data Markup Language (LDML: http://unicode.org/reports/tr35/). LDML is an XML format used for general interchange of locale data, such as in Microsoft's .NET. Major new features of Unicode LDML 1.6 include:

  • Plural rules (such as the 4 forms for Russian).
  • Plural forms of currencies and date/time durations ("1 hour" vs "2 hours")
  • Interval formats for a concise representation of a range of two dates or times ("Jan 10-12, 2008").
  • Telephone codes for different countries.
  • Clarified fallback process for resource bundle lookup and resource item lookup.
  • Explicit definition of Unicode locale and language identifiers.
  • Many other clarifications and corrections.
