IT & Software Industry
We bring you worldwide users with well localized software.
With the spread of globalization and rapid rise in sophistication of IT technology, the software localization industry has had to grow accordingly. Clients once requesting simple translation are now looking for complete localization solutions for multiple languages. This entails extracting source text, translation, integration, and language verification testing. Content requiring localization may include simple GUIs, but also peripheral products such as online help, PDF manuals, and product packaging.
As software companies try to seize the market in major geographical areas, more and more software products begin to release different language versions synchronously, which poses a new challenge to the efficiency and process optimization of localization companies. To help with these new challenges, we offer clients a one-stop solution.
Extraction of source text
CAT tools, which work with the specific software product, are used to extract translatable source text.
Terminology management is especially important in the software translation process to ensure consistency between all the elements being localized. Our terminology specialists use tools to extract highly repetitive terms. These terms are then translated based on the context. During translation, the terms are constantly revised according to the situation and confirmed with the client. Once translation is complete, QA tools are used to check the quality of all documents.
Different tools are used to compile the resource files into the required localized software products.
Language verification testing
Test cases are designed to carry out language verification testing of the localized software. Translations of the source text are revised based on the test results.
Our client was a leading global provider of IT infrastructure management solutions. The software product to be localized was management software that controlled virtual devices, and both physical and virtual infrastructure based on a single visual interface. It enabled easier management, access, and expansion of data centers and remote offices, at the same time enhancing overall network security and network infrastructure stability.
