Currently dateparser supports parsing in some languages and the data used for conversion has been contributed by the community. However the languages supported by dateparser is merely a fraction of the languages used across the world. Also the languages are used differently on the basis of the territory they are used in and thus parsing dates in a language also varies according to the territory. The complete information for parsing dates taking in account both language and territory can be obtained by using locales. Currently dateparser lacks a mechanism of defining and working with locales. This project aims to extend support for all locales in Unicode Common Locale Data Repository(CLDR) which is a standard repository of locale specific data.
