Translation and Localisation: A Guide within the Context of Globalisation and Internationalisation
- Translation and Localisation: A Guide within the Context of Globalisation and Internationalisation
Do you know what G.I.L.T stands for? Globalisation, Internationalisation, Localisation and Translation. Within business, the strategy and services associated with taking brands and businesses global are becoming increasingly important, especially online.
Working in the field, we all come across confusion and misunderstanding over definitions, applications and uses of these terms.
In response, we decided to put one of our localisation specialists to the test by getting her to compile a beginner’s guide to G.I.L.T.
The result is a fantastic guide and overview of localisation and translation within the business context of internationalisation and globalisation.
What’s inside the #g11n, #i18n, #l10n and #t9n guide?
