Representing a growing segment of the translation industry, software globalization (G11N) remains shrouded in mystery to many. What is globalization? G11N ensures availability of a software product in languages besides the language of origin, traditionally US English. It is driven by revenue opportunities outside the Anglophone world for software companies and translators alike. This presentation introduces both the basic concept of globalization and how it involves the translator, in particular. In this paper the authors describe the process from early design and coding to release in the global marketplace.
