Other services – More than just a translation service

Software localisation

Proverb will help you to successfully establish your software  on the global market. The aim  is to create a user interface that appears as if it  had been developed specifically for the target market. For this localisation, we first adapt the software to the  specific requirements (such as dates, paper sizes, or keyboard layouts) and ensure linguistic and technical functionality. Only then do our expert translators start  translating documents such as online help, manuals or user instructions.

As a fully equipped technical translation agency, we use the latest tools to adapt menus, function buttons and user interface dialogues to the respective target country, along with the online help files and printed documents. Text lengths can sometimes vary significantly from language to language, which in these cases we adjust the buttons and all other dialogue boxes in the translation correspondingly („resizing“). A user interface that has been localised in this manner  then forms  the basis for any other related documents.

For successful localisation we consider:

  • Sections of text in script files (such as Java or ASP scripts)
  • Adaptation of FAQs and help files
  • Creating hyperlinks in the target language (corresponding to the source language)
  • Display of fonts and special characters in the target language
  • Editing and creation of texts integrated into buttons and graphics
  • Layout and font display in all major browsers
