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

Too expensive right now… prepare for internationalization later!

Companies considering internationalization are inevitably faced with one key factor they cannot ignore: cost. Internationalization is expensive. For any application involving complex data and potentially millions of lines of code to work properly across multiple local platforms, the costs of localization will be significant.  As a result, companies sometimes decide against localization after meeting with an internationalization consulting firm because corporate resolve is just not strong enough to take on the challenges (and costs) at that particular moment. Nevertheless, most of these same companies will likely find that internationalization will become a necessity in the not-so-distant future.  The good news: even if a company cannot afford internationalization in their current budget, there are many steps they can take now to prepare for internationalization later, such as gathering locale requirements, learning about Unicode, considering third party components, talking to experienced localization experts, refining their planning, and more.

For more information on this topic also refer to article “What If Internationalization Expectations Exceed Your Budget? – Significantly” by Adam Asnes and learn how your company can save resources, time and money by taking a few proactive steps now in order to make their eventual internationalization easier, less expensive, (and less painful) when the time is right.
