>Localization vs. Globalization

In Localization, Sinometrics, Translation Services on August 2, 2007 by mstevensrev

>Here is the salesman’s perspective. A website or software must first be internationalized/globalized before it can be localization. Globalization is the process of getting the code up to speed so that it can handle when a different language is put in for text. Localization is actually taking the source language (i.e. English) and making it into a localized language (i.e. LatAm Spanish). This is what we do at Sinometrics.

In reading today here is how a SLE (Software Language Engineer) would describe the difference from Dot Net Guts, here. And a previous entry from them, here.

What a difference, huh.
