This topic is most important for website owners, but even if you don’t own a website now, learning something new won’t harm you.
What is Website Localization?
Website localization is a fancy way of referring to the process of adapting a particular website to a local language to serve the demographic people of a particular country or place better.
Why do I need it? How is it different from simple translation?
It’s a bit different from simple translation, as it adapts to the language while maintaining the cultural context of the content. In other words, my lame jokes will be properly translated or replaced with equally lame jokes from a different language. Thus, maintaining the Law of Conservation of Lameness.
We at TechGlobule, just use a Google Translate Widget for this, which more often than not, has erroneous translations.
