Even to the untrained individual, the importance and benefits of applied IT translation are fairly obvious. In order to reach an audience that stretches beyond the bounds of regions and countries that speak a developer’s native language, translation and localization services are a must.

What is applied IT translation?

However, few are aware that information technology translation goes further than simply transferring, say, an app from using US English to using French, Spanish, or Japanese. It is also concerned with converting currencies and measures, and can even be converted to suit the culture of the area.

Advantages of applied IT translation for translators

If you are a translator willing to expand your activity to get more translation jobs then you should learn to use technology to your advantage. More and more clients are looking into and require their translations to be done by using computer assisted translation tools like Trados. They already know about the advantages of using such tools and they want to cut down costs while maintaining consistency and accuracy, and CAT tools are the perfect way to achieve that. It is therefore important for you to know the ins and outs of using such tools for mutual benefits.

Despite public opinion, such tools are relatively easy to use and even if they’re not, we strive to give you as much info as possible about it. Our translator training video page is filled with videos on how to use applied IT translation in your work, and our Youtube channel has even more videos on the subject.

Information technology localization for business

There are more reasons as to why IT translation and localization are so important for businesses. In today’s era, we rely massively upon technology in order to promote not only our business advancements and production, but also our personal desires, personalities and creativity. Language translation allows us to express that to attentive eyes and ears all over the world without the often-laborious and limited practice of becoming fluent in another language.

With IT translation, we are capable of so much more in terms of sharing and exchanging ideas. You can receive often invaluable insight of someone that views your profile, your app, your business or product no matter where in the world they are. Without translation, this vital process of human sharing would once again become tedious and slowed by the barriers of language.

Break language barriers with translation

Our desire to not be hindered by the barriers of language and distance when sharing what is truly important to us is an incredible manifestation of the human drive to connect with one another. In order to maximize our benefit from the achievements, ideas and discoveries of others, those methods of sharing information globally are vital. As work online grows, being able to speak to our clients, co-workers and customers quite literally in their own language is absolutely invaluable.

Not only is the wide scope that IT translation and localization allows us to reach like-minded or challenging ideas from across the globe so important, but also the speed in which it can work in a world where time is becoming a precious commodity. As well as personal, creative, journalistic and academic applications of translation, there are a great many other possible applications for this such as global security. And like many industries driven by specific technology, there is the opportunity for the technology itself to adapt, learn and advance; certain barriers that might be present in straightforward ‘language-to-language dictionary’ translation, such as context and tone, can be remodeled and solved over time as more user information is collected.

Information technology translation and localization is not simply a function or service, it is a vital tool both creative and driven by dedicated and passionate people. Through their work, we are able to more readily learn, express, collaborate, develop and progress – not as an isolated entity, but a part of a global network of social learning that continues to expand and thrive.
