What is localization and why is it so important?

Localization is the adaptation of a product, application, or document to meet the language, cultural and other requirements of a specific target market. For software companies, localization is the process of translating and adapting the user interface, online help files, tutorials, printed documentation, and marketing materials for a product for non-English speaking markets.

Localization is a vital process that ensures that your company is offering the same impression to all customers and employees, both locally and overseas.

What does localization involve?

Besides translation, localization encompasses the following areas:

What is translation memory?

Translation Memory (TM) is a software system that analyzes and stores previously translated phrases and/or sentences (we’ll call these “segments”) for future use. It works like this:

  1. The system is first populated with existing translated material in both the original and translated languages.
  2. New documents are analyzed for matching text, and the software offers the previously translated text segment wherever it finds a potential match.
  3. The translator reviews the suggested segment and decides whether to accept or reject the matching text from previous translations.
  4. If the matching text is rejected, the translator will manually translate the phrase and the new version is added to the memory.

Translation memory works well with manuals or catalogs where many phrases repeat, but would be of no use in translating a novel, for example.

Do you offer volume (or other) discounts?

We offer volume discounts for large projects or long-term projects. In addition, we may be able to offer discounts for leverage from the translation memory, using the process described above.
