While writing a WordPress plugin for Zenphoto I noticed that some of the database entries contain localized metadata.
For example for some images EXIFExposureTime is "1/250 sec" while for others (newer ones) it is "1/250 sek". Other metadata fields are affected as well (e.g. EXIFMeteringMode may contain translated text).
Is this expected behaviour? I think this makes parsing of and working with metadata unnecessarily complex.
