Software & Web Localization Services Done Right!

Software and web localization is the process of converting the content, code, and features of a product or service to make it fit the locale of the user's region. The localization process can be as simple as translating the content to a different language. However, in most cases, it is a complex process that resembles the original product creation and involves a full team of people working together to plan, execute, test, and release.

The team at GlobalReady has extensive experience working on thousands of localization projects ranging from a few web pages or software strings to multi-tier enterprise level applications that contain several million words of text and lines of code.

Localization projects involve project management, translation, engineering, graphics and desktop publishing, and testing.

In planning and executing every localization project, we employ the most highly skilled resources and processes based on years of experience, as well as the most advanced technologies available.

Tips for Successful Localization

  • Avoid making assumptions about units of measurement, number and date formats and hard-coding such assumptions.
  • Do not make assumptions about the structure of text. Word order, grammar, text mechanics, and writing systems can vary widely from one language to another.
  • Linguists are language experts and don't necessarily know the difference between one programming language and another. Protect them from technical complexities by separating text from code.
