Software localization covers a wide range of activities. At its simplest, it involves the extraction of translatable text from source applications, submitting for localization and rebuilding the application in any target language. In reality, localization involves complex and technical tasks performed by a variety of specialists, including translators, engineers, graphic designers, programmers and project managers. Effective integration of these tasks is essential for the success of any given project. Localization enables users to interact with software, Help, and documentation in their own language, in turn enabling vendors to sell more products and reduce the cost of international support.
