What do the Terms “Translation,” “Localization” and “Interpreting” mean?
Although the three terms Localization, Interpreting and Translation are sometimes lumped together under the rubric “translation services,” they are, in fact, closely related but different forms of rendering content from one language to another:
|Translation||is rendering a written document, such as an installation manual or a pharmaceutical patent, from one language to another|
|Localization||is adaptation of software, multimedia or websites to specific languages, cultures and locales. Translation is only one of the stages of localization|
|Interpreting||is an oral form of translation, enabling real-time communication at conferences, over the phone, etc.|
