Create localized software and hardware, customized and tested for global users

Globally Customized Software

Creating global software has unique challenges.

For your technology to succeed in the global marketplace, an international focus is needed during its design, development, and testing phases. 

Our software and app translation services can assist you from your product’s design to its launch.

Internationalization

To develop globally scalable software, internationalization is key.

Internationalization, also known as “i18n”, is defined by the Localization Industry Standards Association (LISA) as “the process of generalizing a product so that it can handle multiple languages and cultural conventions without the need for re-design. (LISA definition, cit. Esselink 2000: 2)”.

A common example of internationalization is ensuring that the correct character encoding is used, normally Unicode, so foreign languages with special scripts will display correctly.

Also, date and time need to be in a universally accepted format, since countries vary in their conventions.

We review your product’s encoding and conventions as well as image text and page layouts and provide pre and post-translation testing to ensure your app is global ready.

Done correctly, internationalization will save your company time and money and guarantee an enhanced user experience across foreign locales.

Localization

Localization, the process of translating your multimedia or software content for its target market or locale, has unique formatting and cultural objectives that go beyond document translation.

For example, since many languages are longer than English, text expansion after translation is common. The page or screen’s spacing, as well as its buttons and headers, need to allow for this growth to ensure a good flow and an attractive finished look.

We focus on specific terminology, the text’s context, and the purpose or objective of the content to create an accurate translation that’s true to its source.

S2 Lingua’s localization service includes a cultural review of images, symbols, and colors so your product and its marketing collateral resonate with your international users. Our team of multilingual designers provides the best multimedia localization fit your global content. 

A successfully localized product will feel tailor-made for the foreign user. For your product to be competitive in the global market, it needs to not only be functional but also linguistically, aesthetically and culturally appropriate to guarantee a great user experience.
