Locale

Locales are a composite of a language and region or country, and may include a script which defines the character set used if there is more than one.

For a new locale, a list of the hundreds available is shown. After selecting one, the login page will be shown.

The columns for editing an exiting locale are:
#NameDescription
1UserAvailable user interface languages to use for Smallsite Design supplied text, such as on buttons
2NextLocale to use as the fall-through if an article or text doesn't exist for the current one. Select None to fall-through directly to the master locale. Displays None for the master locale
3QuotesWhich set of outer-inner quotes to use. Typically, each nation has an official style guide, but while newspapers may use that, online outlets tend to use what their readers expect, which often means the US “ ‘ ’ ” resulting from their decades of cultural dominance of the web
4RenameList of regions available for the current language-script. Only available if there are no current article phases. After selection, the login page will be displayed

Typically, each nation has an official style guide that specifies which quotes to use, but while newspapers may use that, online outlets tend to use what their readers expect, which often means the US “ ‘ ’ ” resulting from their decades of cultural dominance of the web. Look at what the online news sites that your target audience likely uses to see what might be best to use. See Related sites for some links for research.
