Software Localization Services
Choosing the right software localization services can be a struggle. Naturally you’ll be concerned with turnaround times, the overall project costs, and whether your translation service provider can align themselves with your specific software development methodology.
At Language Intelligence, we don’t just translate software, we develop our own in-house solutions and make them available to you—then we use our localization and programming expertise to make your software useful across your global target markets.
We know that there are many stages to software development, localization being just one of them. But because different languages have different programming specifications and requirements, we can help you prepare your software in the initial development stages so that once you’re ready for localization you can lay all worries about setbacks and delays to rest.
Commonly Requested Software Localization Services
There are a number of different software localization services we’re asked to provide, the most common of which are:
We work with a wide range of export formats to localize UI strings and integrate translations directly into native files.
We translate installation guides, user guides, and help documentation for consistency with the translated UI strings to be as clear as possible for target language users
We offer in-language functionality testing and in-context linguistic review to ensure the translated software is ready for release. This step can be performed remotely or on-site at your location.
Translated content can vary in length by as much as 30%. When you are writing content for mobile devices this can materially affect the user experience. We understand issues specific to mobile content and work with you to assure that your user experience in other languages is consistent with your original intent.
Through our tech developers, we can help assess your software during the various stages of development to help you reap the cost and time benefits of internationalization—the process by which software is prepped for future localization.
We Work in Alignment With Your Development Processes
Waterfall, agile, or a hybrid development process? We can align with your process requirements to match the localization effort to your development pace. Whether for initial development or for updates, we work collaboratively to develop localization processes that ensure the success of your software abroad.
Our technical staff, project managers, and translators are able to work in any file format, including but not limited to:
- .properties files
- .rc files
- .resx files
- Visual Basic
- Visual Basic .NET
- XLIFF files
Whether you’re coding firmware in C, designing an ASP.NET customer portal, or developing an object-oriented multi-tiered enterprise application with Java and PHP, Language Intelligence has the skills and tools needed to make your localization project a success.
