Explain the implications of user localization settings.

Locale: changes display of dates, times, numbers, names, and addresses.  Notice the difference in date formats between the US (MM/DD/YYY) and UK (DD/MM/YYYY).

Language: determines which language components (fields, setup menu, etc.) are displayed to the user.  Notice the difference between English and French.

Time zone: determines the offset used to display time references in Salesforce (similar to changing the time zone on your computer).

Currency: can only be selected when multiple currencies is enabled, and will determine the default currency for records created by this user.  If currency cannot be selected on the user record, then multiple currencies is not enabled and the organziation’s currency locale will be used to determine how currencies are displayed for all users.
