How much should I avoid localization Answered
Who is my audience? I started writing my first instructable and hardly got two sentences written before I found myself assuming everyone is in the United States. For instance if want to say some fabric costs $4.50/yard at Wal-Mart, that's potentially 3 things not everybody can immediately understand: the dollars, the almost exclusively American unit of measure, and a store that's not in every country. Should I just say it, or should try to translate. i.e. The fabric costs about USD $4.92 per meter at local discount stores. There must be a middle ground, but my strong Aspie craving for exact specifications makes me ask here before getting started.
