Localization and Internationalization

Localization and Internationalization

Internationalization: Writing in a neutral, simple language so that the document can be translated to other languages without much trouble. There are standards for it like the The European Association of Aerospace Industries (AECMA) Simplified English. The AECMA Simplified English (SE) dictionary is defined in the AECMA standard PSC-85-16598 developed by the aerospace industry.

Localization: The actual process of translation.

At least, that’s what I have understood.

Now you know why you have to keep it simple when you write that manual, don’t you?

Important note: Robohelp gives a lot of trouble in translations. That’s what I have heard at least.
