Software localization is the process by which programs are adapted to the culture of another country. More precisely, that means translating the user interface, documentation, and accompanying files from one language into another.
High-quality localization plays a significant role in corporate success, boosting software sales in overseas markets. The reasons for this are simple and obvious: easily understandable software requires less employee training time and increases labor efficiency overall.
We offer several types of localization for you to choose from, so call us at +353 85 2153557 for a free consultation on each of them.
You’ll love our speed, quality, and personalized approach!
Based on the number of supported languages:
- Multilingual localization is translating software into several languages at once.
- Monolingual localization is translating software across a single language pair.
Based on completeness:
- Full localization includes translating the interface, accompanying documentation, and marketing materials.
- Partial localization includes only the interface or marketing materials.
English is at this point the lingua franca, and the most popular directions for localization are not coincidentally from and into it.
We can also offer translations from 40 languages into Russian and vice versa, including such rarities as Hindi and Urdu.
As of 2015, we offer translations in 20 language pairs from English into other foreign languages: French, German, Italian, Spanish, other European languages, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
File formats for localization
Not sure if we can localize a particular type of file? We work with the following document formats:
- XLIFF, КС, RESX, INI, PO, PROPERTIES, XML, HTML, and others.
