Technical Translation and Localization of Web Application Case Study
May 31, 2012
As many of you know I am a huge fan of using Adobe FrameMaker for desktop publishing, so I thought I would share with you one of many neat projects GPI has completed using Adobe products. In the context of a full software localization project, this case study explores the process of producing RoboHelp9 files from FrameMaker 10. The online Help was then published using the RoboHelp files. The project's results were typical in that we saved the client and ourselves time and money by leveraging Adobe Tech Comm Suite applications, and used them to their full potential. Using the combination of FrameMaker and RoboHelp enabled a much more stable and dependable workflow than using a stand-a-lone product as all changes other than the Help appearance and structure were kept in the primary FrameMaker files… thereby saving time and money off the project
At GPI we have worked on a wide array of customer software localization projects in various languages. Our Software globalization services include:
- Internationalization assessments through implementation and testing
- Localization of user interface, online help and printed documentation
- Comprehensive and customizable quality control
- Utilization of Translation Memory technologies for consistency and cost savings from one project to another
- Client-driven development workflows
- Software internationalization, localization and functionality testing as required by our clients
- Client review and approval opportunities at key stages in the process
We would like to thank both ESi and Adobe who worked very effectively with us to finish this project not only on time and on budget but with great quality. You can click the link provided to see the full ESi Case Study for more details.
