Localization tools for newbies


         As far as language industry is concerned, there are different types of localization. Simple definitions of these types are as follows:

  • Dub localization, the adaptation of a movie or television series for another audience.
                                                                       (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Localization)

        We may also talk about Website localization or internationalization which refer to the translation of the website content either into a local language or into an international one. The main tools which may help achieve this purpose online are (GlobalizeIt, Bablic).
       The videos that I have chosen for you are a comparison between two Localization tools, Catalyst and SDL Passolo. See how each tool localizes the application "notepad.exe" and a ".resx" file.
