I have no idea what you are looking for as far as explaining "simplifies localization".  Unicode is a multi-byte character set, that is essential for working with foreign languages.  I fail to see where any character encoding scheme actually simplifies anything, so it would be difficult to satisfy this question's requirement.

Software localization means translating a piece of software, like an smart phone application or a computer program, from one language into another..... It is because of multilingual text processing being easy in UTF system.

To add to TempDBA's answer: we're talking about human languages here (English, Chinese, ...), not to be confused with the language that's used to develop a piece of software (C#, VB.NET, Java, ...).

I also like TheLearnedOne's answer: character encoding schemes do not simplify anything, but they are needed to overcome certain problems (such as being able to support all characters needed for a certain language).  Wait until you encounter collation collisions and you'll understand immediately what we're referring to!

Here's an example of a collation issue: http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2007/06/11/sql-server-cannot-resolve-collation-conflict-for-equal-to-operation/
