Localizing address fields

Hi there,

I'm looking for advice on localizing address fields. I'm designing a UI that
could potentially be used by folks in a large number of countries. The
target user profile is a small business owner who uses a computer to get her
job done, but is not technically savvy.

Different countries use different terms to represent similar information.
For example, the U.S. uses "zip code", but all other countries seem to use
"postal code." Similarly, the U.S.

question about estimating relative importance of ucd

I'm looking for resources that address the relative importance of UCD to different projects. All the materials that I can find appear to assume that UCD is equally important in all cases, whereas I'm pretty sure that it's less important for a project that will have 3 end users who are domain experts and who would spend 95% of their day using the system than for a project that would have 4 million end users who don't really understand the domain and would use the system once a year.

I have just joined this community, and thought it only polite to
introduce myself.

I've just graduated from the Interaction Design Institute Ivrea with
a masters in Interaction Design. Before the blissful two years in
Italy, I was running my own company delivering web design and
interactive media consultancy for a few years, and before that I
worked for design consultancy SmallBackRoom. My degree was originally
in Product Design from Central st.

Agile process and interaction design

My company (we build social networking websites) has hired consultants to
migrate us to an agile development process. Our IA group (we are actually an
interaction design group that has been mis-titled) has spent the past six
months developing standards, patterns, and detailed documentation of our
products. I do admit that our modified waterfall process takes way too long,
however, we are scratching our heads about where we will fit into the new
agile process. The training has yet to begin, so our only information has
been from office rumors and the web.
