Localisation Tools

Localisation Tools

In order to localise software user interfaces effectively you need good tools. These are tools that help translators manage their work, reuse old work, choose the correct terminology and prevent common errors. This project will enhance and expand the abilities of various localisation tools.

Virtaal, a computer aided localisation tool which is being developed by Translate.org.za within the Localisation Tools component, is now available in Nepali. The Nepali translations was completed by a partner from the Panl10n network.
