Translation plays a major role in the user experience. Why neglect it?
In the Web world, User Experience is progressively taking the central position it has always deserved. Designers, entrepreneurs and developers attend to their users' every need and this is great news.
UX designers know that creating a user experience implies tackling many different parameters and having an eye for detail: interfaces, processes, texts, graphics, etc. However we regret that one of those parameters, which does have a major impact, is too often neglected: translation.
Let's localise experiences, place all users in a central position, original version users as well as the others. Web and translation professionals, let's stick and work together. “Translation is UX!”
