In the 80s I worked for the European (UK-based) arm of a major US software vendor. Our remit was to take the application suite (GL, AR, AP, Order Entry) and add support for multiple languages, multiple currencies (including cross-currency transactions), alternative date formats and various flavours of European VAT. It was a lot of work and a lot of fun. Also included were multiple trips to US HQ to "learn about" the application. In practice we took it as opportunities to try and educate the US developers on how to write the app so that, if not international out of the box, at least straightforward to add international features to. The US developers were lovely folk, but consistently never really "got" the need to cater for anyone other than their domestic market. The company was eventually taken over by a larger competitor and the application suite dropped. Had it been cheaper to convert for the world market I suspect the outcome might have been different.
