Expert Telecommunication Translation Services

The terms “Translation” and “Localization” are often used interchangeably. However, translation and localization are two entirely different things. While translation is an important component of localization, localization is a much more deep, complex process.

Translation refers to the simple translation of written content into another language, so that it’s readable and understandable in context. While this is often enough for basic intelligibility, it does not take the cultural preferences, needs, and desires of your targeted audience into account.

Localization, on the other hand, is much more in-depth, complex, and time-consuming. When a website or a piece of software is localized, the software or website itself is modified – not just with translations, but with other changes, such as:

● Graphics targeted to specific markets

● Content that’s modified to suite the tastes/habits of a target market

● Adaptive design/layouts that present translated text properly

● Conversion to local requirements (currencies, units of measurement, etc.)

● Proper local formats for dates, addresses, phone numbers

● Adherence to local governmental laws, regulations, and guidelines

Localization is much more time-consuming and in-depth than translation and requires an expert knowledge of your targeted culture, language, and the software that’s being modified. That’s why it’s so critical to choose a localization company that is experienced, knowledgeable, and employs a wide variety of native localization specialists.

So if you’re localizing an application, a piece of software, or a website, you need to partner with the right company. You need to choose On the Dot Translations.

Professional Translators, Expert Localization Specialists
To successfully localize your product, website, or software, you need much more than a team of translators. You need a team of translators, project managers, and localization specialists/software developers.

While translation is usually performed after the completion of a document or product, localization often requires a localization team to work simultaneously alongside the software or website that’s being developed.
