Frequently Asked Questions

What is software localization?

It’s the process of adapting a software application to the linguistic, cultural, and national specificities of the end user’s country. Software localization is usually carried out when entering foreign markets.

Why is it important to localize software products?

Even if your software product is successful with users in your country, this doesn’t automatically mean it will be internationally . Users notice when an interface has been developed without taking into account their language and culture. This can have a negative impact on global sales, brand loyalty, reviews, and recommendations.

What’s the difference between software localization and translation?

Software translation involves only changing the language of the product, whereas localization also includes changes in design, UI/UX, fonts, text length, content, visuals, etc. The goal is to make sure the software has been fully adapted to the local culture, so that it feels and looks natural to the end-user in the target country.

How to set up continuous software localization?

Continuous translation runs parallel to product development, ensuring a smooth localization process. It is continuous because it never stops – translators get sent small chunks of texts on a regular basis, which need to be translated and sent back as quickly as possible. This is where software localization tools come in, as they help to streamline the whole process.

With Smartcat, you can set up continuous localization with just a couple of clicks. All you have to do is integrate your CMS, design or dev tool with Smartcat to get your content translated and automatically uploaded back onto your system.
