Software Localisation Services
Software localisation plays a major part in the global translation market. Localisation (also ‘localization’) is far more than a direct word-for-word translation. When localising, software must be adapted linguistically, culturally, and contextually and technical aspects such as display and string lengths all have to be considered to meet the requirements and needs of the target countries.
What are the benefits of using ALM Translations for your software localisation services and translation?
Software localisation is a key component of user guides and online help translation. It is imperative that the complete globalisation workflow is correct from the offset. ALM Translations has a dedicated Technical Solutions department which uses the best industry software to help identify, extract and translate your content. All coding is locked for protection and the file is prepared prior to being sent to our expert translators. Our translators will carefully analyse terminology and search for words and phrases that could be easily misunderstood. Ensuring your user interface software is user friendly for your target market is essential.
