After succeeding in your local market, many will look at entering international markets, where localization of your software graphical user interface (GUI) may become a necessity. Often, a product localization group or a technical translation services group is tasked at this point with converting the application into other languages, including its GUI.
Quality Assurance (QA) of localized products is often an afterthought to the localization effort – despite the fact that it plays a major role in the localization process.
With low overhead and relatively small startup costs, software companies continue to mushroom in the U.S. to provide thousands of applications to niche markets. Once successful at home, efforts are made to quickly expand globally to gain market share and increase revenues.
