What is software localization?
Software localization is the process of adapting a software product to the linguistic, cultural and technical requirements of a target market. It involves translating and adapting the software and all related product documentation as well as project management, software engineering, testing and desktop publishing.
Software localization is simply localizing or preparing a software program, and its operations and documents, profiles, and various other attributes as per the preferences of a local market. It also includes adjusting the functional elements of an application keeping in view the requirements and behavior of a domestic herd.

The need of software localization services
Gartner has conducted a study which concludes that over $77 billion of revenue will be generated by over 268 software downloads across the world. So, offering an app in local language is the best way to serve the customers and global markets as well. According to Common Sense Advisory survey, over half of consumers worldwide buy products from only those websites that provide details in their own language. Furthermore, above half of the top-10 countries that churn revenues from application downloads, are from non-English speaking continents, like East Asia and Europe.
Amidst the environment of globalization, most leading businesses of today are searching for new horizons, in new global locations.

The best method of software localization
The best approach engrosses the transformation of theme, content, interface and design of a software or website as per the inclinations of domestic consumers. We, at MTS, follow these steps when providing you with our result-oriented software localization services –
Design Alteration – When optimizing an application, design is the foremost aspect that should be paid much attention to. The theme and design must be optimized as per the propensities of local audiences. Some designs and themes might not appeal the people of a country or region. A universal design sometimes might not be fit for a group of people in a demographic boundary. Therefore, it must be changed for influence them.
Text translation – Here comes the major part. For a number of businesses, localization is limited to just translating the existing text of a software program. However, it is not limited to that only. It holds a key role in the entire process. The visible and the backend text – everything needs to be changed accurately, to render the optimum ease of use.
Testing the application – It is the final step that ensures that flawless localization solutions have been applied to your business practices. Testing the website or software after it has been optimized for a new periphery is the most important step. In this step, we check the quality of the altered features and text.
