Solving the Speed Issue of Software Localization
The key issue that holds back localization from keeping up with development is speed. The leading benefit of continuous localization is moving projects faster, in alignment with agile development. But we still have to translate, and despite all our translator tools, when it comes to complex software, the context of the translation has been a problem.
In continuous localization, U/I strings are sent in small batches, leaving the translator little context for a word or message. The translator might receive 16 words in one file, 32 in another, 6 in yet another, and so on. With words having so much nuance per language, you can understand that this is a tough challenge and a solution creates opportunity for improved global user experiences plus cost, time and hassle savings. But there is no magic in software and that’s why this challenge remained for so many years. We’ve come up with an elegant solution and we’ll show you how it works.
Like people say, a picture tells a thousand words.
