TRAN3046 Introduction to Localization (3 units)
- TRAN3035 Introduction to Computer-aided Translation
- Medium of Instruction:
Localization was defined by the former Localization Industry Standards Association as the process of ‘modifying products or services to account for differences in distinct markets’ (LISA 2007:11). In other words, it entails not only translation but also other processes to help ensure that the product (which could be a piece of software, a website, a video game or a mobile app) is completely in line with local expectations and requirements. This course aims (1) to provide students with the theoretical background to understand the process of localization and (2) to help students to develop a range of relevant skills by providing them with hands-on experience with practical localization tasks in a range of different roles.
