Why Translate Software?
Translating your IT content into German offers a great opportunity to make your software accessible and appealing to some 100 million people who speak German as their first language (and around 200 million German speakers in total). Whether it’s an app, a desktop application, or a web product – you will significantly expand your business opportunities by having it translated by a qualified and experienced German translator.
The German-speaking public:
- will, quite often, only be able to use software products if they are properly localized
- will prefer software that is properly localized for the German market
- is often ready to pay more for a product in their own language
While IT translation is essentially a subtype of technical translation, there are still some key differences between the two. IT translations need to be properly tested in order to ensure that everything works well in context; they often require in-depth knowledge of IT terminology – in an industry that is known for rapid change and transformation; and they often require some technical work in order to extract the actual text from the code and put it back in place without damaging it.
