Localization is not simply translation but also include the process of adapting the software for a new market, with a different language and culture. It involves translating original materials and analyzing the semantics in the target language to make sure that the functionality of the software properly work in another culture. Localization also needs to take into account technical aspects of the software and devices, such as screensize, Unicode support, programming languages… to achieve the best result.
