Website and App localization

The process of adapting content to the traits and traditions of a specific culture by using latest industry technologies

Why is localization necessary?

Localization is a comprehensive process during which the cultural, non-textual and linguistic elements of a product or service are adjusted to a given country’s market. In the age of universal globalisation, the significance of localization cannot be denied. Our linguistic experts are able to ensure contemporary language usage as well as compliance to the various aspects and nuances of a specific culture.

Localization is crucial when introducing a product to a foreign market and is often considered to be one of the main factors in ensuring the profitability and growth of a company, by forming a dialogue with local consumers in a manner they’re accustomed to.

Website localization

A Website is the face of almost every international company. To work in another country’s market successfully, it is not enough to simply translate the text – it becomes necessary to adjust the measurement units, time and date, and to format the design in line with local traditions.

— Adjusting the visual content
— Text adjustment to the SEO needs of the local market

Software and App localization

Software and apps must be adjusted to the expectations and customs of local markets in order to make their usage more convenient. When localizing applications and software, special attention must be paid to the accurate transformation of currencies, time, units, address formats and other aspects, as well as the design.

Multimedia localization

In order for audiovisual content to be accessible for everybody, we use transcription or subtitling. For this process, using localization is crucial upon beginning the translation – if subtitles aren’t localised, it will be more difficult to edit them later on.

— Adjustment of visual elements, if necessary

Localization of marketing content

Any blog post, media publication, booklet or other form of marketing content has a specific purpose, e.g., to attract new clients or to increase home page visits. To achieve this goal, marketing content must be personalised, something which can be achieved with localization.
