Let’s start right from the beginning. For many people, the difference between translation and localization (L10N), isn’t always clear. Localization is essentially a specific type of translation, usually for a piece of software or a website, that is designed with a specific location in mind. Although all good translations should have an element of localization, localization takes things one step further. Instead of focusing on just words like in translations, localization will make sure that pictures, people’s voices, and the content is 100% suitable for the target country, giving the end uses that local feel.
Workflow is another place where translations and localizations differ. Our expert translators will work with your resource files, filtering the code into two parts: the part that needs translating, and the code itself (which of course won’t be changed). Here’s a bit more about our workflow:
Our expert project managers are fully trained in working will all different file types, so no matter what you need, we can help.
When it comes to quality localization, we’ve got your back. That’s why all our localization services come with a lifetime guarantee. Our dedicated Quality Manager will make sure that your texts are flawless, overseeing the whole localization process and ensuring our translators have followed our stringent quality checks before delivering the project back to you. We know all of this pays off, as we have a success rate of 99.87% on all the projects we’ve done.
If you’re getting something localized, the chances are there will be more than one piece of software etc. that needs localizing. To represent your business to the full, keeping everything consistent is the crucial. Our linguists are specially trained and used to working with the Microsoft glossary, for example, ensuring everything is kept the same.
We can even help you create your own personal glossary for our translators to use, to make sure that your website and e-shop, for example, are fully consistent.

Our services let them rest assured that our finished product will function just like their original ‒ in whatever language they choose.

If you’re looking to expand into a new market, a local website is necessary.

We’ll make sure that your text fits, and is culturally suitable, giving your clients the feeling you’re local.
If you need your game in a different language, our localization experts can help. We’ve got a team of translators who are also passionate gamers, who know just how your game should be. We understand game localization, and know that localization isn’t just about writing - we’ll make sure that your navigational elements, in-game texts etc. are flawless. You can trust us to deliver a perfect game, ready for success in a new market.
We can even localize audio and video projects. We regularly localize radio ads, YouTube videos, tutorials, company presentation videos, and commercials, to name a few. Whatever you need, our team of native dubbers are ready to help.
Localization is a job for an expert, and we just so happen to know a few. We understand that each type of project should follow a different style, based on what it’s for. Another issue that translators deal with, for instance, is adhering to the spacial constraints of a program’s text. This is why we’ve hand-picked each and every one of our linguists to ensure your needs are always met.
As localization is so specific, our prices differ for every project. Get in touch and we will put together a tailor-made quote for you, so you pay for exactly what you need - nothing more and nothing less.
