Manual file handling of very large filesets is inefficient.• Lost time• Opportunity cost• Lack of dynamic, central overview• Time lag• Synchronization gap• Process gulf
Small changes can introduce manyproblems and big project risks!
Small changes can introduce manyproblems and big project risks! Single Language Vendor Freelancer Pool MultiLingual Vendor Steady-state demand for translation
What risks?• File confusion• File corruption• Bug exposure• Over- or under-translation• Inaccurate assumptions• Engineering rework cost• Potential for missing deadlines• Exponential downstream burden
Risk mitigation requires being closerto control mechanisms.
Lingoport Resource ManagerBefore translation, LRM automatically:• Monitors source code resource files for additions and changes;• Checks candidate source files for localization-readiness;• Flags files that do not pass for rework;• Packages localization-ready files in a localization kit;• Sends the package to the vendor for translation.After the translation package is returned by the vendor, LRMautomatically:• Inspects the files for potential mistakes that are known to occur during the translation process;• Reinserts the translated files into the development environment at the proper location;• Reconciles the environment.
LRM executes iteratively, and presentsthe current status in a dashboard view Source Reintegrate Detect changes & Verify Verify Build L10n Kit Send for Translation
Ten reasons to deploy LRM are:1. Automates iterative, non-value-added file management tasks.2. Automates validation checking for common errors.3. Reduces human error.4. Provides intuitive, real-time dashboard status overview for all stakeholders.5. Supports ease of deployment and operation.6. Bridges the gap between development and localization.7. Speeds localized resource turnaround time.8. Reduces human resource opportunity cost.9. Supports industry-standard development environments.10. Enhances agile localization
