Internationalizing your software for the global marketplace is a smart sales strategy. But it can be costly if you lack the resources needed to manage the process. You can control your time and costs more efficiently with Merrill Brink’s expert internationalization (I18N) services.
Merrill Brink offers the following software internationalization and website internationalization services:
- Internationalization Assessment
- Internationalization Testing
- Localizability Verification
Many of our clients have found that planning ahead for software internationalization – before they define a specific need to localize their product – is the best way to control costs that arise later in the product cycle. This is also a smart way to manage website internationalization. We offer an array of planning services such as:
- Consultancy/training on best practices for developing international software
- Source code analysis to identify I18N issues such as:
- Data input/output, storage, searching, display, sorting, etc.
- Locale and culture requirements
- User interface (UI) issues
We also offer first-stage product testing for I18N issues as part of our services. Our test team will collaborate with you to identify issues in areas such as:
- Data: input/output on international keyboards, layouts, etc.
- Effects/results of opening data in multiple locales
- Locale specific settings: numbers dates, times, time zones, decimals, etc.
We can manage the entire process of logging I18Nbugs, fixing them and performing regression testing on the fixes.
We can also help you create user-friendly UIs as part of your software internationalization or website internationalization project. As a first step, we test your product or website UI using an automated technique known as pseudo-localization to identify potential issues and ensure that the UI is ready for localization.
Once the test build is produced, we perform localizability testing to verify that the UI can be easily translated without re-engineering or modifying code during localization. We can manage the entire process of logging I18Nbugs, fixing them and performing regression testing on all fixes.
