String Extraction: Localized software products often require sets of data that are to be customized depending on the region. This data (mainly strings) is extracted from the code and saved in “key=value” format separately in files commonly known as resource bundle or language packs. String extraction from the code and putting them in language packs means the code becomes locale-independent and can handle multiple languages and the translators will deal only with translatable text and not the programming codes.
We offer String extraction for all programming languages to make your software, web-site, mobile apps internationalization (i18n) ready. The application can handle multiple languages without resorting to multiple coding for different languages.
If you want to sell software or any other product to an international market, you will be doing a disservice to your customers by engaging with them in only one language. Software localization is an important strategy for businesses attempting to reach international markets.
Software localization for mobile and web apps are not same as localizing the documents. The strings to translate are often too short and are sometimes single words. The context is not very clear unless the product and the user interface is revealed to the translator.
