Localization

As well as an excellent value for the money, the office is characterized by experienced translators and interpreters, appropriate technical background supporting translation, and customer focus.

Localization / Localizing / Multilingual text localization / Software localization

During localization, source-language content is adapted to a target-language environment. This is necessary for the target-language recipient to understand the original message, despite cultural differences. The simplest example of this is when one converts units of measurement, for example from kilometers to miles.

Localization is most often associated with the translation of computer programs and applications (software localization) or websites (web localization), however, it covers a much wider area. The most typical examples are the following:

  • Software localization
  • Web localization
  • Localization of content published on user interfaces
  • Localization of instruction manuals, specifications, helps, glove-box literature
  • Multimedia content localization
  • Localization of marketing, sales promotion, creative translation

The translation may be carried out into one language only, but multilingual localization is more common. Larger localization projects are typically technology-intensive. We work with an international translator team and computer-assisted translation tools (CAT tools). We also take advantage of the so-called version tracking provided by CAT tools, with the help of which work may be carried out faster and less expensively, as in the case of changed or updated contents, we need only to work on the modified text parts.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Central Europe, has had a contractual relationship with Afford since 2009. Generally, we request the translation of complicated legal texts, often with very short deadlines. We always get quality work that holds our long-standing working relationship together. We especially appreciate the high degree of flexibility, customer orientation and personalized, custom administration, as well as the confidential treatment of materials sent. It is important that we can always count on Afford. Moreover, Afford is open to criticism and suggestions for improvement, and requests these, because they are progress-oriented.

As a company listed on the stock exchange, NordTelekom’s written materials are expected to radiate sophistication, whether they are financial statements, contracts, or even simply marketing texts. Afford has been the reliable partner we can count on in any situation. This is particularly important now, as our constant expansion in England requires English, Polish and Hungarian language services. I highly recommend them.
