Trusted Translations has the resources and experience necessary to take your software program to a global level through its comprehensive Internationalization service.
Internationalization (i18n) is an industry definition that entails the development of a new (or modification of an existing) product to enable said project to be used in many languages and sold in different countries. Special coding is used in order to allow for the seamless management of information in multiple languages.
One logistical challenge with software internationalization is separating the source text from source code. The text to be translated or localized, both visible and hidden, needs to be separated in a way that preserves the integrity of the code.
Software localization has the potential to open up your target market ten-fold. It is of the utmost importance that all documentation and consumer interface text be translated using the accurate technical lingo and nomenclature.
Ideally, globalization should be included in the normal product development cycle. If taken into account in the development stage, the primary code will be written in a way that allows for the efficient management of multiple languages, including the ability to edit, track and upload new text.
