Localization - What is it?

Localization is the modification of a business, product, content, or such so that it satisfies both the language and cultural differences of the targeted market.

Successful Localization

The goal of our localization solutions is to provide you with a user interface, whatever form involved, that communicates comprehensively on all levels with your target locale. Successful localization will address the following general categories of factors that should be considered:

Language
Professional translation of your services, products, documentation, web site, and so on.

Content and Culture
Often projects require modification of product information and possibly operation for the target markets. For example, different currencies demand changes. Cultural differences can also play a part in deciding on the way information is presented.

Technology
Particularly when software localization is involved, differences in language can mean changes to a product's design and structure. For example, one issue brought up when converting an English language software application to Chinese is the differences in single-byte (English) and double-byte (Chinese) characters.

It becomes clear that top professional localization services are provided by companies with strong backgrounds in not just translation but also software and internet development.
