Is your software product internationalized? A New Way to Keep Score

It’s finally become fairly common knowledge that for the best results, you need to internationalize before you localize code. But internationalization requirements can be difficult to articulate, negotiating locale can be error prone and it’s easy and expensive for internationalization errors to slip all the way through to release.

In our interactions with many globally-savvy development and localization organizations, it’s clear that there’s a need for systems to evaluate, monitor and track internationalization status and progress over time. This is particularly emphasized with fast release cycles, geographically distributed development teams and the important and emphasis on growing global revenues.

In this one hour webinar, you will learn how the new Globalyzer Internationalization Score Card provides mechanism to report on the status of your internationalization efforts and how to tailor an i18n Score Card template to your specific project requirements.

The Score Card leverages Lingoport’s i18n tool Globalyzer, a client/server software system which helps entire teams find, fix and monitor internationalization issues in their source code. Globalyzer identifies and reports in a wide variety of programming languages and helps entire development teams internationalize source code, both initially and as an integral part of future releases.
