Both terms have a distinct meaning (see eg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internationalization_and_localization):
Internationalization is the process of designing a software application so that it can be adapted to various languages and regions without engineering changes.
Localization is the process of adapting software for a specific region or language by adding locale-specific components and translating text.
The django documentation on "internationalization" doesn't make such a distinction and mixes both.
