Agile Localization: Building Bridges Between Translation Quality and Rapid Software Development

Agile Localization: Building Bridges Between Translation Quality and Rapid Software Development

Staying in sync with the rapid cycles of Agile software development can be a challenge for any technical communicator, and even more so when localization is involved. Localization includes both the technical and linguistic aspects of translating software and documentation into other languages. You can be a hero in your organization by creating a smooth process to build a bridge between the seemingly incompatible processes of agile development and localization.

In this session, you will learn:

This presentation will cover the bigger picture of localizing both software user interface (UI) text and documentation. You may need to educate your software development teams on the need for internationalization of the software, using coding techniques that streamline the translation of the UI text. For your documentation projects, you can multiply the benefits of single-sourcing to save costs and speed up time to release. You will come away with a broader understanding as well as specific tools to help with your localization efforts, from the “front-end” of software internationalization to the “back-end” of linguistic quality review.
