Software Localization is a complex process. One should
not view it as document or Web site translation exercise.
A software vendor seeking to localise its products for
overseas market needs to make a number of considerations.
- Ensure the software source code has support for
multilingual character set
- Ensure the interface is cultural adapted to reflect
cross board useability and cross cultural issues
- Ensure the software has strings and text separated
- Ensure that the translation is culturally attuned
to your target market
- Ensure that once the translation is integrated
to the software, subsequent software release can
also make use of the translation
- Ensure the translation support undergoes extensive
testing including testing on overseas IT platforms.
Unless, you have a proven methodology, translation
of your software can lead to many pitfalls.
