This is what we call it when we send a click to a specific website based on its location / country. If you share a geni.us link that uses amazon.com as its destination, and someone in France clicks it and ends up at amazon.fr, we've localized that shopper's experience.
This isn't related to language! Finding the same product in two (or more) storefronts is rarely as simple as matching the product number. We've built out a 5-step algorithm that automates the process of finding a product in another storefront. First we check the product number, then the name, then the product's metadata, followed by a generic search, etc. We call this process translation.
Affiliation is essentially the process of receiving credit for a click or sale to an online store. In our case, affiliation is making sure that your Amazon (or iTunes / Microsoft Store) tracking ID is associated with a click or purchase.
We support automatic affiliation for Amazon, iTunes, and Microsoft, which means that you can connect your tracking IDs to your account (via the Affiliate page) and then you don't have to include your tracking IDs in the URL itself.

Okay, you got us. This isn't a true glossary since it's not sorted alphabetically. We wanted to put the most important info at the top!
