It is complex, taxing and requires significant pre-planning to ensure the efficient and cost-effective localization of a product. This is why it is advisable that businesses invest in high-quality software localization services like those offered by Global Lingo.

Many people ask: What is software localization? In short, it is the process of translating software to a specific language so that a product meets the technical, linguistic and cultural necessities of its target market.

THE BENEFITS OF SOFTWARE LOCALIZATION

Efficiently implemented software localization provides a number of benefits to an organisation. The outcome is more than simply the translation of a product’s user interface. It enables businesses to eradicate cultural barriers so that their products can reach a much larger, varied target audience, maximizing sales as a result. The ability to supply software products in multiple languages is essential for any global software supplier. In addition to this, the quality of the translation, as well as its overall turnaround time, plays a significant role in the success of the localization process as a whole. As with website localization, we provide a tailored end-to-end service for software translation, so you don’t have to worry about the intricacies of this process.

Service Features

Global Lingo use dedicated, expert software localization tools such as SDL Passolo. SDL Passolo is a highly specialized, visual software localization tool developed to enable the efficient translation of user interfaces. It is renowned for being a crucial component of the software localization process, allowing users to concentrate on the translation by accelerating its various technical and in-depth aspects. Our strategic and experienced team know exactly how to translate software using a diverse range of niche tools. These tools integrate with our translation software, allowing linguists to edit content as it would be displayed when the software is running. This is achieved via a: “What you see is what you get (WYSIWYG)” editor. This editor elevates the translation quality, simultaneously checking that the content is correct and fits within the software layouts.
