The Python API  , has had an extension , to permit the developers , to  arrange the system modes and the localization of all the policies in a programming way . The API is also able to set the localization as it’s main priority and providing the application of the policies , which are to be based on read node kind and hereby , discard the localised files , in accordance to the specified criteria.
