Bonsoir, Micah

Pardon d'avance pour la longue réponse, mais il est bon de savoir la signfication d'une expression avant de la traduire. L'explication en anglais e les deux exemples et sites en référence me font choisir l'expression "configuration régionale".

Locale Windows NT has so-called Input Locales to make it easier to use multiple languages on the same system. These inputs locales define the keyboard layout and the way Windows applications process certain information. For example, if you select the input locale Dutch, then dates will be displayed as dd-mm-yyyy rather than mm/dd/yy, and currency items (say in Excel) will be displayed in guilders. Word uses the current locale setting to set the parameters when a new document is created; the language setting for the spelling and grammar checker is automatically set.

paramètres de lieu (nationaux)


Explanation:
paramètres de lieu is the definition given by grandictionnaire for input locales
i added "nationaux" because of the following definition (grandictionnaire)
ibm ansi-c sttle locale function which changes the formatting convention for date,time,monetary data for "each country" so it's not "régionaux" at all for locales!
hope it helps

These locales are applicable (...) also to other countries which have similar formatting conventions, character classification or character collation tables (...).
