The top four challenges in software localization
- The meaning of software texts is often abstract. With little context, they are difficult to translate. Experienced specialized translators and good communication are the solution.
- Tight deadlines. Translation memories (or software localization tools), machine translation or team building are the solution.
- Syntax of programming languages: it must not be touched. Service providers with programming skills know the danger and avoid mistakes.
- High localization costs. Experienced service providers with good processes and software know-how work efficiently and use cost-saving tools and scripts.
These questions are frequently asked for IT translations
Languages that are translated from right to left often use different character sets than languages that are translated from left to right, which can cause problems in rendering the text correctly. One challenge is to ensure that the text flows in the right direction. This can be a challenge for layout professionals. One example is the position of images in the layout (different order). Another problem that can occur is formatting numbers correctly. All in all, with proper planning, attention to detail, and the right tools, it is possible to produce accurate, high-quality translations.
When translating software strings and manuals, it is important to avoid some common mistakes. One mistake is to translate the software strings in the software manual verbatim without checking the actual strings in the software. This can lead to errors and incorrect actions by the user. Another mistake is to delete or translate code, which can cause the software to malfunction. Also, it is important to use consistent translations for important keywords so that users can easily understand the software.
The locale parameters (“locales”) in software localization are the settings that govern the languages, regions and cultural conventions used by the software.
Some examples of these parameters are the settings for date and time, for currencies and number formats, or for sorting lists.

Your texts and software in different formats
You can give us your content in a variety of formats. We can take the texts of your software documentation from content management systems or editorial systems such as Schema ST4 or TIM-RS and return it to you in such a way that it can be imported directly into your respective system. This eliminates the additional step of preparing the data on your side.
If necessary, our DTP department adapts the layout of the translated files to the specifics of the target language: different text lengths, encodings, right-to-left languages such as Hebrew or Arabic and much more.
We can process special formats and encodings. From machine texts, software messages to PO or TEX files. Of course, if required, we make sure that display texts do not exceed the specified length – whether in characters or pixels.
