Just the other day I read an article on how we should be more open to the natural fluidity of language and its capacity for change, allowing the usage to define the rules and not vice versa. Therefore, it doesn’t surprise me that new complex words and neologisms are popping up at every corner. And like language, neither other products and services should be immune to change. I’m sure you’ve already heard of globalization and most definitely of localization, but the word glocalization opens up a whole new dimension.

When my colleague first introduced me to the term culturalization, I thought it was yet another synonym for localization. I wanted to believe I wasn’t completely wrong, but the facts showed me I wasn’t right either. My spell checker, too, thinks I’m definitely wrong as I’m typing this. So, to educate myself, I did a little research on the enigmatic term and what I found really stuck with me.

Many software developers are confronted with certain challenges in the software localization department that they might have trouble overcoming. Instead of trying to find an adequate solution to their problem, they just leave it as it is and hope for the best, which often results in a product that is full of bugs and glitches. It should not be forgotten that the process of localization is a complex one and requires a great deal of planning, patience and coordination, so we’ve made a list of things that should help you with L10n of your product.
If you are still having trouble figuring out what is localization (L10n), or even worse globalization (g11n), you came to the right place. Many people seem to think these are just fancy words for translation, but it’s not really the case.
