is one of the most relevant, popular, complex areas of modern translation and multicultural and functional adaptations that is successfully performed by  the “Myvic Solutions” LLC International Translation Center for many local, foreign and international companies, software publishers, IT-integrators, outsourcing companies, game studios, web studios, internet projects , software developers and designers teams, operating systems, games, massively multiplayer online games, antivirus, mobile applications, browsers, social networks, websites, portals, blogs, and more.

Unlike most traditional translation agencies and translation bureau in Ukraine and the CIS countries, who are understanding the phrase “software localization” as a name for just the translation of the user interface and help documentation,

professional team of software localization department of the “Myvic Solutions” LLC International Translation Center (translators-localizers, system analysts, programmers-editors, programmers-developers, UI-designers, testers-native speakers, web programmers, web designers, game designers, pro-gamers, professionals of the leading specialized research institutes and associations, analysts marketers, project managers),

thanks to a unique long-term practical experience, knows exactly that software localization is much larger,

much more complicated and complex process, that often involves not only the translation, but also the cultural, functional and other adaptations of multiple elements and processes, including cultural and legal features of the software in different countries and professional fields of application:

number formats, date formats, time formats, currency format, other local standards;
keyboard layouts, keyboard shortcuts, keyboard combo’s;
specific characters, special characters, special signs;
typical colors, standard shapes, size and location of the individual elements, ergonomics, “usability”;
text, font, length of sentences, the typical phrases, expressions, slang, names, titles, and terminology;
dialogs, recourse to the user, semantic compliance;
graphics, images, animations, diagrams;
historically approved features of the interface, methods and practices of the use, the stereotypes;
conformity to the mentality and cultural environments of different countries;
compliance with ethics and social morals of different countries;
compliance with local and international laws, and more.

Neglect or inattention to these features (sometimes minor and hardly noticeable at first glance), which can be made by common translation agencies and translation bureau in the process of software localization, can lead to various unpleasant incidents(serious or funny: misunderstanding or misinterpretation of the meaning by the user, the erroneous use of elements interface, ignoring  of the full functionality, inadequate work program or a complete failure, and, finally, to the most terrible: complete misunderstanding of where to go, what to do and what to press to escape the crowds of monsters and go to the next level or location in a computer game) for the user, software developer, publisher of computer games, the site owner or a social network account owner, and, in result, may seriously affect the commercial success of software, sales of games, the success of the campaign, and, of course, image and brand reputation of the label, studio, company in foreign markets and in a professional environment.
