Internationalizing and Localizing Cisco’s TelePresence – A Case Study

Cisco TelePresence is an exciting telecommunications system that provides high-definition 1080p video, spatial audio, and a setup designed to link two physically separated rooms so they resemble a single conference room even though the two rooms may be on opposite sides of the world. Since its official launch in 2006, Cisco TelePresence has been making a powerful impact on corporate meetings, communication and travel.

Global by its very nature, TelePresence faced some internationalization and localization challenges, and Cisco decided to partner with Lingoport and Sajan for expert help.

In this webinar recording, Richard Faubert, QA Manager at Cisco, joins Adam Asnes of Lingoport and Gary Condon of Sajan to review and discuss some of the challenges faced in internationalizing and localizing TelePresence, including several technologies used in its various components. The presenters also discuss how i18n development, localization and testing was tightly integrated into Cisco’s development and QA process, producing better engineering and linguistic results.

Virtual Roundtable: Is it possible to achieve good, quick, and cheap in localization?

Good, quick, cheap – pick any two. Localization project managers will tell you this project triangle is the way it has to be. We posted this question on several LinkedIn groups in order to hear the opinions and insights of a wide variety of fellow industry professionals (customer and vendor-side) and, oh boy, it seems like everyone has a strong opinion on this topic.

The discussion on LinkedIn inspired us to take this discussion to a different level and actually have industry experts talk about it in a virtual roundtable.

The goal of this virtual roundtable is to stimulate debate, learn about our challenges, discuss potential solutions, etc. and see if we can come away with new ideas that will help us cope with the “Fast, Cheap, and Good Quality” triangle.

Supporting Internationalization Across Your Enterprise With Globalyzer 3.4

There is tremendous value in knowing if a product is global-ready as part of your development cycle. Large amounts of development, marketing and branding dollars are at stake. Yet often, the only way software gets verified for localization, is during the localization process itself, or based on a limited series of manual interface testing. That’s way too late in the development cycle to be efficient and a very incomplete way to address the issue.

There are all kinds of products to support issues like software security and efficiency, but how about checking on internationalization, which for many companies is a hefty and vital product requirement for a good share of company revenue?

In this webinar recording, we’ll be demonstrating how Globalyzer 3.4 (our new release) finds, categorizes, tracks and helps fix internationalization bugs in source code using static analysis.

The webinar recording features special guest Michael Kuperstein, Localization Engineer, Global Language Solutions, at Intel. Michael’s responsibilities at Intel include tools development and internationalization consulting for product development teams; he has lead Globalyzer implementation at Intel.
