We provide a wide range of software localization services for three basic components of a product: the graphical user interface, the on-line help and the related documentation.

Translation of Software or Graphical User Interface(GUI)

Technical Translation of Online Help & Manuals

Translation of Cultural-Related & Legal-Related Content

Regarding translation of the software interface, translators often will be given a special translation files that then will be merged back into the code (see the formats section below). The same functionality can be achieved with an online translation system that relies on a database. Sometimes, translators will have to edit computer code that defines so-called constants and code syntax needs to be respected.

UI/GUI Translation

We can also localize electronic hardware and machinery software (medical devices, machinery, office and telecommunication technologies). We localize internal text/menus/commands related to devices respecting international codes and standards.

Technical Translation Services for Manuals and Online Help

We also offer technical translation services to localize Online Help files and manuals in HLP or CHM formats, created from HTML or RTF files, or from DTP applications (e.g. FrameMaker) using RoboHelp or similar tools. Regarding the source format, various options exist and sometimes several are used concurrently.

Technical Adaptation of Software Translation

Software localization must account for units of measure, time format, number formats, address formats, paper sizes, fonts, currency conversion, copyright issues, and local regulations to proper fit into the contextual needs of global users.

Like scientific and technical translations, software localization demands accuracy, precision, and technical understanding of the software's lingo and nomenclature. Additionally, it requires the ability to translate those ideas to languages that may not easily accommodate technical jargon.
