Software & Website Localization
The convergence of globalization and the expansion of electronic communications has opened new fields for translators beyond the traditional need for document translation. Websites and software applications now need to be accessible to audiences globally in multiple languages. However, these types of content delivery pose technical issues many translators are not equipped to handle without additional training. This course is aimed at introducing translators to the world of web and software localization and mastering the skills needed to pursue it as a business opportunity. We will focus on the technical background and skills required for this work as well as the translation approaches needed for culturally sensitive and creative content.
