Localization is the process of making a software or website more suitable and appealing for a particular demography. This requires adjusting interfaces as well as written and audio-visual content. Effective website and software localization attract local audiences to the brand.
If global success if part of your strategic goals then a software product or website that has international appeal must also be high on your priority list. This international appeal is a very effective tool to broaden the scope of your brand. The content, structure, and appearance of your website or software must be in sync with the culture of the people you are trying to attract. Essentially therefore, you want your brand to speak the language of the people.
But cultures and languages vary which means that content that works wonders with the market in one country may fail to get attention in another country, or in the worst-case scenario might even attract negative attention if the content is deemed culturally inappropriate. The best solution to this problem is to localize the content. And to get localization done effectively, you’ll need a team with expertise in multiple cultures and languages. In other words, you’ll need a team like ASAP Translation.
