Internationalization

Internationalization - or I18n in short - is the process of designing a software application so that it can be adapted to various languages and regions without engineering changes.

I18n makes sure that different components of the software such as the code base, user interface, messaging and error handling tests can accommodate different alphabets and scripts, numeric systems, writing directions, capitalization conventions, sorting rules, currencies, measurements and more.

Most software developed in the last decade has been internationalized during the development process. But older products with a code base developed for limited national markets or with large, complex legacy code sets will require I18n before the product software can be localized.

With nlg on your side, you can rest assured that all of your products can reach global markets in a timely and cost-effective manner.
