Application and software localisation
Why it’s important to consider language right up front in the development process
There are unique challenges in application localisation that make it different from translating documents.
But language partners are often included late in the development
process, after an application has been designed and tested.
This can have a significant impact downstream when you want to localise them, leading to:
- Poor quality
- software that won’t support advanced localisation
- a UX / UI that struggles to support other languages
- Delayed launch dates
Our team works every day with global organisations to help them localise their applications and avoid these common challenges.
“On our journey to launch trainline.com across Europe in 9 languages it was vital that we get the localisation of our web and mobile apps right. The Lingo24 team has been with us every step of the way, from the challenges of plurals and the importance of context for short string content to the successful launch in each market.
Today, Trainline has more than 90 million visitors each month, from customers in 173 countries.”
