Software Translation

Looking for professional software translation services from a world-renowned software translator?

The Unique Challenges of Software Translation: How Translating Software is Different

Software is one of the most difficult products to translate effectively. In addition to ensuring that every textual aspect of the interface has been completely translated, it is important to localize the interface in every way possible. Standards for display of various forms of information vary wildly between cultures.

When translating software, it may also be necessary to localize additional collateral, such as marketing materials and technical documentation. Since all of these items draw upon the content of your software, having it all translated by the same professional organization is an ideal solution. ALTA is positioned to help you not only with your software, but with everything that goes along with it. This helps ensure a cohesive, coherent experience that will help make your product a success in its target market. Once we’ve worked with you to localize your content for a single foreign market, it becomes much easier and faster to build on the process later.

What Software Translations from a Professional Software Translator Does for You

If users do not get the functionality from your product that they expect, you will not get the sales you want. A big part of functionality is ensuring that users understand your interface and are able to find and achieve what they desire. Seconds count in software, so any form of confusion can cause users to turn away from your software. A professional translation can make it more than 50% more likely that a user from another culture will continue to enjoy your product — making it far more likely that he or she will continue to do business with you in the future. In short, translation is one of the most critical aspects of your global bottom line.
