Title:

Challenges in Software Localization: A Case Study of a European Educational Network

Author:

Law, L-C.

Abstract:

In localising the platform UBP designed for a diversity of European users, we adapted several features given in standard programming support and developed some alternative approaches to handling textlets and image buttons. The costly translation cannot be relieved by software translation tools, which are either lacking or are perceived as useless. International Usability Tests on seven language versions of the UBP with native users are being or will be conducted.
