Lingoport and Foreign Exchange Translations Webinar: Internationalizing and Localizing a Medical Software Application

Internationalization and localization for medical products tends to have special case business drivers and can take on life-and-death importance. First, there’s adapting products for better worldwide sales, but often issues like reducing liabilities and saving lives drive the process just a bit differently.

Join us for an interactive one-hour online presentation as Adam Asnes, CEO of Lingoport, and Andres Heuberger, CEO of Foreign Exchange Translations, discuss basic principles and processes that make medical products different.

Webinar: “Internationalizing and Localizing a Medical Software Application”
Date: Thursday, December 16th, 2010
Time: 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PT
Where: Your desktop

Presenters: Adam Asnes, CEO of Lingoport, and Andres Heuberger, CEO of Foreign Exchange Translations

We’ll discuss product architectures, testing and solutions to verify functional and linguistic accuracy; we’ll also take an in-depth look at:

This event targets global manufacturers of medical device, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and healthcare products, including: localization managers, internationalization managers, software developers, engineers, engineering managers, information developers, and senior executives responsible for international market share as well as customer-side professionals involved in the translation and localization of medical and life sciences content.

Lingoport Webinar: Supporting Internationalization Across Your Enterprise With Globalyzer 3.4

There is tremendous value in knowing if a product is global-ready as part of your development cycle. Large amounts of development, marketing and branding dollars are at stake. Yet often, the only way software gets verified for localization, is during the localization process itself, or based on a limited series of manual interface testing. That’s way too late in the development cycle to be efficient and a very incomplete way to address the issue.

There are all kinds of products to support issues like software security and efficiency, but how about checking on internationalization, which for many companies is a hefty and vital product requirement for a good share of company revenue?

In this webinar, we’ll be demonstrating how Globalyzer 3.4 (our new release) finds, categorizes, tracks and helps fix internationalization bugs in source code using static analysis.

Cost: ComplimentaryPresenters: Adam Asnes and Olivier Libouban of Lingoport

We’ll start with some source code and then:

  • Analyze it for internationalization issues
  • Customize “rule-sets” so that specific issues to that code can be address
  • Show how that information can be accessed and shared among development team members
  • Integrate automated Globalyzer static analysis via command line
  • Support testing initiatives

The Webinar targets technical managers, software engineers, test engineering managers, QA managers, internationalization and localization managers, and anyone facing ongoing software globalization and localization challenges.

Note: We’ll be diving straight into coding issues and will be skipping internationalization basics. If you’re looking for a presentation on internationalization and localization basics, please visit this archived presentation from Localization World: http://vimeo.com/16345751

GALA Webinar: Internationalization Basics for Non-Engineers

Join Lingoport CEO Adam Asnes for a webinar on the business and development issues that shape internationalization.  Learn practices that make internationalization a simple part of the process.

Date: Thursday, December 9th @ 11:00 EST
Where: Online
Register: http://www.gala-global.org/gala-webinar-internationalization-basics-non-engineers
Cost: Free to Lingoport customers and affiliates (select “I’m a customer of a GALA member” when registering)

While many GALA members are extremely proficient with localization, internationalization is often just barely understood, or not at all. Yet a poorly internationalized product will give localization efforts sub-par results and reflect poorly on the localization – not the development. Additionally, when a client approaches internationalization, the efforts are often not systematic, making quality a risky endeavor.

Join Adam for this hands-on webinar featuring practical real world advice based on extensive software globalization experience over a wide breadth of technologies and applications.

This interactive online event targets professionals involved in helping their company succeed in international markets, including internationalization and localization managers, project and program managers, international marketing managers, senior executives responsible for international market share.

Do internationalization (i18n) tools work?

Blog post by Chris Raulf, Marketing Director at Lingoport

I recently met Tex Texin (I18n guy) at LocWorld and looked up his Website where he lists a variety of translation, localization, and internationalization tools. Nice job!

Working in the I18n space, I’m wondering which I18n tool (open source or commercial) does work for you and why?!

Lingoport is about to release Globalyzer 3.4 and I’m interested to learn about additional features we may want to include in our next release.

Also, if you’re interested in learning more about the latest Globalyzer release, join us on Tue., Nov. 30th at 11am PST for Webinar “Supporting Internationalization Across Your Enterprise With Globalyzer 3.4.” Register at: http://www.lingoport.com/supporting-internationalization-across-your-enterprise-with-globalyzer-3-4

Video Recording of LocalizationWorld Presentation: Intro to Internationalization and Localization

Internationalization and Localization experts Adam Asnes, of Lingoport, and Angelika Zerfaß, of zaac, recently presented at LocWorld in Seattle. Their session “Intro to Internationalization and Localization” was moderated by Daniel Goldschmidt, principal consultant and cofounder of RIGI Localization Solutions, and is now available for online viewing.

The one-hour recording of their presentation provides an overview over the different areas in internationalization and localization projects where best practices exist — starting from the concept of internationalization and how it is applied to project management dos and don’ts and the tools and technologies used in the field.

Watch the Videos from the Boston Localization Technology Round Table

The Boston Localization Technology Round Table event was a great success. Nearly 40 customer-side industry professionals registered for the live event, and 100+ people registered for viewing the live-stream from the event.

For each of us presenting, it was a great chance to offer something new for the industry—a way to bring the conference to the event attendees and feature best practices and efficiencies offered by five separate but complementary companies. We hope that the attendees learned something, met a colleague or two, and gained some valuable perspective. We all enjoyed the event too and are already planning our next Roundtable in the Bay Area this coming February. Connect with us on social media and be the first to learn about upcoming events and much more: http://www.lingoport.com/socialmedia

The video recordings of each individual session from the Boston Localization Technology Round Table are now available for viewing on the Lingoport Website.
