Professional Software Localization
Localization is the complex adaptation of software to the linguistic norms and national nuances of another country. This encompasses the translation of content, interface elements and reference information, as well as adjusting the layout and programming. At the same time, it is necessary to be aware of the logical integrity and style of the original content so that the end product remains consistent with the original intent.
Localization of software and games is a complex step-by-step process
First, the text is translated into the target language.
After that, the interface elements are placed and aligned. At this stage, it is important to take into account that the size of the messages in the source language can significantly differ from their size in the target language. For example, an English text may increase in size by 30% when translated into German.
The localization process also considers the graphical layout of some languages. For example, Arabic and Hebrew are written from right to left.
Then, careful work is done to adapt various auxiliary files. For example, an image with the text may need to be redrawn and voice files will need to be re-voiced.
