Key to success

___ Your needs
You work in product development and/or management and are responsible for localizing your company's software applications. This generally involves highly specific content, multiple languages, a complex publishing/authoring environment and extensive supporting documentation.

In addition, you're usually working to a tight deadline on a tight budget. Not to mention the fact that you need to be sure of consistently high standards of quality and context-sensitivity across all languages. How can you be sure that

  • Your source code has been properly tested for its localization-friendliness?
  • Localization will not impact negatively on the stability or integrity of your software?
  • All dialogs, menus and links work correctly in the foreign languages?
  • Your product and corporate wording is applied consistently?
  • You avoid duplicate work dealing with different service providers for each language?
  • Your translations are consistent, context-sensitive and of a high quality?
  • Previous or similar translations are being "recycled" for maximum cost and time efficiencies?


___ The solution
Capella & McGrath offers a solid, end-to-end Software localization package that covers all areas of linguistic and technical competence in the software localization chain. We add value to your localization processes by bundling complementary services and core competencies, enabling you to achieve predictable results faster and more cost-effectively.

Whether you're looking to optimize existing processes or set up a new workflow, our experience and know-how can help you set the right course. Foresight and good planning go a long way towards avoiding costly mistakes that might delay time to market or, worse still, damage your reputation.

Over the last ten years, we have gained vast hands-on experience along the entire localization chain. This, coupled with our extensive technical and linguistic resources, means we can quickly and effectively localize and test your software simultaneously in multiple languages. In addition, we leverage synergy effects across your software, web content and technical documentation to your benefit. The higher the volume of material to be localized, the greater the potential for time and cost savings through translation tools and technologies.

Media interfacing
Failure to preserve the integrity of your source code can result in costly and time-consuming reformatting and reprogramming. But it doesn't have to come to that. Drawing on our extensive experience in the handling of complex publishing environments, proprietary tools and various software applications, our technology team ensures that your content can be seamlessly and reliably transferred from one language to another within the publishing environment of your choice.

Knowledge management
The difference between information and knowledge is access. We can help you maximize the return on your multilingual assets by leveraging the latest language technologies and content management systems to capture, structure and distribute your multilingual intelligence for maximum benefit.
