When you come across an international cultural convention in a software product, you may notice it almost immediately. That recognition might not affect how much you like the product, but you will surely be aware that the product's manufacturers did not design the interface keeping you, your language, and your culture in mind. Software localization will help solve this dilemma. The software localization process adapts the software to the specific culture, the language of the local user, standards of measurement, and finally to video and graphics. When effective software localization services are enabled, the final output will function quite similar to as if it had been originally designed in the user's own country.
If you want to localize your software and looking for a reliable and effective localization software development, then partner with the right software localization services providing companies like Flatworld Solutions. Our engineers and managers consider everything from geopolitical sensitivities, accurate symbols for currency, measurements, and dates in the user's country to offer a quality software localization process.
Software Localization Services We Offer
With our localizing software applications, clients are assured to get high quality and efficient services. Our variety of software localization services include -
Software Localisation Services for All Platforms
In-Context Localization Software Development
Software localization includes translating a graphic user interface (GUI) strings into various languages. Unlike document translation in which sentences/paragraphs are translated as they are, software GUI strings are usually stored in separate resource files with their respective ID numbers without context information; meaning translators can't see how each string is displayed or used within the software which further leads to potential translation accuracy and text truncation issues. Flatworld Solutions, a leading software localization service provider solves this dilemma with innovative software localization technology solutions.
First, you need to upload the resource files and software screenshots onto our online translation portal. FWS will then automatically map each GUI string to its actual screenshot in real-time, allowing our linguistic experts to view the entire context information during its translation. This reduces the software localization turnaround time and enables improved linguistic quality and technical accuracy overall.
Localization Software Development meets just-in-time (JIT) translation
The software industry is increasingly agile, taking on an iterative and incremental approach to application development. Hence, frequent updates are an inevitable part that leads to its constant and fragmented translation needs. FWS' just-in-time (JIT) translation model favors these continuous translation requirements, allowing developers more time to focus on their software and gain a time-to-market advantage.
Continuous DevOps Translation
Multiple software companies are welcoming DevOps to shorten application development life cycles whilst delivering the best software quality. When it comes to releasing software products in international markets, translation services ought to be provided continuously using an on-demand, automated translation workflow. With our cloud-based translation model, FWS helps the world's leading software companies stay ahead of the competition in the global market.
Localization of User Interface
User interface localization service is one of the most important steps involved in globalizing your software product. Localizing your user interface includes text strings translations, layout adjustments of your interface to suit the linguistic and cultural contexts.
FWS makes localizing your user interface as easy as pressing a key. We match you up with the local translators who specialize in localizing your type of software. FWS' built-in terminology management system ensures consistency in translation while minimizing your costs. Our translation platforms allow you to browse and select translators by subject matter expertise (SME) and translation history; hence, each localized version of your software operates as smoothly as the original one.
Holistic Localization Tests
FWS Localization testing ensures quality between the localized application and the source product. Once localized, the software is verified on various user platforms to check if the translated versions operate as smoothly and that the texts have been applied correctly.
FWS allows its engineers and translators to engage in linguistic and cosmetic testing. Linguistic testing is a double check of the translated software that systematically verifies each translated line of text for its accuracy. FWS uses professional local translators having subject matter expertise for linguistic testing and verification purposes.
Cosmetic testing is an essential step to ensure the localized software is free of any truncations, misalignments, or any other layout issues. Our local experts have a specific framework for examining your localized software for any common mistakes.
FWS is backed by a global network of thousands of subject matter experts (SME) growing daily. FWS' mobile translation approach makes translation accessible to bilingual subject matter experts who had previously been shut out of the translation process. That means bilingual computer scientists, programmers, and designers can now contribute to translation which translates into a serious understanding of your localization needs and the technical expertise to execute on all software localization types. FWS helps in every step of the localization process, including pre-and post-translational processing, and is one of the best software localization services providing companies.
