Title:

Designing InDesign-J: A Case Study in Cross-Cultural Interface Design

Author:

Shade, L.

Abstract:

InDesign-J broke ground as the first full-featured desktop publishing software designed for Japan. It was also a first for Adobe Systems, a company that had not previously attempted such a product. This paper describes the challenges encountered, both internal and external, in developing a product for an overseas target market within an American company; the overseas user-centered research and design process; and unique considerations when localizing a complex product.
