Field labels and field sizes
Consider field label names and field sizes during the design phase. For example, an application written for a user in the United States might have a user-defined field that reads "Social Security Number." This field might have to read "Government ID Number," or something else in another country. The field size might also change if the value is different, for example a nine-digit value instead of a ten-digit value.
