Localization is applied in translation work for web pages, video games and software. To locate a product or service, it is necessary to carry out modifications or adaptations in the original, in order to be able to market it in its target market.
KEY FACTORS IN LOCALIZATION
WHEN IT IS USED
Localization is not restricted only to the specialized translation of computer content, as it goes much further, and can be useful for video games, web pages, software, advertising, etc.
The predominant language in the videogames and software sector is English, so it is this language that is usually localized in to Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, etc.
Today, however, and also due to the rise of mobile telephony, Asian languages have gained importance, and, due to their complexity, localization to languages other than English is more complicated.
