Localization for UX
A good source should be clear and fluent, focusing on the user and conveying a key message using natural phrasing
Localization is the process of adaptinga product, a service or digital content to the language and culture of the target locale, so that the end result would sound natural in that locale. Great localization can make a digital brand, just as bad localization can break it.
Translating words isn’t enough. Successful localization must consider cultural norms and match formats and visual elements to every locale. Today’s top brands have a global audience. But outdated translation services won’t get you there. Learn the modern approach to connecting with customers in any locale.
