Case Study: Software Localization

Under Blog, News | Posted by Corinna Broetz

CETRA Language Solutions provides Software Localization, including software analysis, build engineering, bug fixing, scripting, and process automation.

Software Localization goes much further than translation of the User Interface. Bringing a software product to a global marketplace not only requires professional industry-specific translation, but also the software development expertise to ensure your localized product is tailored for your new markets, without compromising on quality or performance.

The Client

International life sciences company providing automated solutions for biomedical testing. Our client develops, manufactures and markets diagnostic systems that simplify, automate and innovate complex biomedical testing used by physicians to diagnose disease, make treatment decisions and monitor patients.

The Challenge

We were tasked with developing a complete solution for localization of the clients’ software to 13 languages. We established a team of skilled software localization engineers and QA testers who worked closely with the client’s development team to review source code, identify translatable content, select the required CAT/engineering tools and support with localization engineering and compilation of language versions of the software. Software consisted of approximately 8K words and project duration was 3 months.

Key activities performed:

  • Extraction of localizable content
  • GUI Localization
  • User Guide translation and integration of localised screenshots
  • Compilation of localized software and online help
  • Localization QA Testing
  • Final build approval

Client Benefits

  • Regulatory Compliance
  • Exposure to new markets and greater return on investment
  • Improved customer experience
  • Quality control of localized product
  • Standard localization process for software updates
