User guide and software translation require a specific approach. When localising, software must be adapted linguistically, culturally, and contextually, and technical aspects such as display format and string lengths must be considered.


Software translation and localisation services are essential for providing translated user guides and online help to your valued end users. It’s also vital that the complete globalisation workflow is correct from the outset through professional translation by a reputable company.


ALM Translations provides software and user guide translation for a variety of applications:


Web browsers

Although many internet users have become accustomed to using web browsers in English, providing your browser consumers with a localised, translated version of your software will help you to maintain a high level of user engagement and customer retention in what is a very competitive market.


Cloud and phone applications

Our in-house project managers and in-market translators can work directly with software developers to ensure a seamless process of translating your copy for non-English speakers. Thanks to our agile approach to project management and the use of cutting-edge translation software, we can scale our team quickly in line with your requirements with no downtime, no matter how large your project.


PC-based applications for CNC machines or cash counting devices

More specialised applications such as software for CNC machines or cash counting devices require experienced translators who have worked in similar environments previously. All our translators are rigorously vetted and trained to ensure translations are both accurate and consistent.


Touch screen applications for conveyors for the automated food industry

ALM translates projects using the latest cloud-based translation technology and a human translator to guarantee the best translation solutions for your software localisation requirements. This results in better delivery times, quality assurance and cost savings.


Multi-format capabilities

Your User Guide and supporting documents may be in file formats that require further engineering and post-production work. All formats are covered by ALM’s typesetting services (.indd .html .xml etc.) and are compatible with our money-saving translation memory systems. If you also require localised screenshots to be recreated for your target user guide, ALM can help with these as well. If you’re looking for further cost savings, ALM’s Project Managers are on hand to evaluate whether machine translation would be a good fit for you.
