SDL software localization services at a glance

Internationalization: We begin the process by assessing whether your product has been properly internationalized and can support other languages. We use a process called “pseudo localization” to identify where your software can’t display translated text for any reason.

Localization: Once we receive your source code and files for translation, SDL localization engineers isolate translatable text from code. Following translation they then merge files back to their original format. This process includes quality steps, ensuring translated files are error-free and can be merged back into the build environment. 

Testing: The SDL Test Lab offers linguistic and functional testing, and supports more than 40 languages in a fully-equipped and secure test lab. This testing ensures that your localized software has gone through a complete testing cycle for any additional bugs.
