<p>A Practical Guide to Localization was written for translators, localization engineers, testing engineers, desktop publishers, project managers, and anyone else who may be involved in the release of multilingual products. In this second edition, translators can learn more on localizing software, online help, and documentation files, and on the latest translation technology tools. Localization engineers will learn all about developing, engineering and testing software and online help projects. For project managers, there is all the information needed in planning translation or localization projects, finding resources, and ensuring the quality of deliverables. New to this second, fully updated and revised edition are chapters on internationalization, desktop publishing, and software quality assurance. <p>The book has been designed as both a reference work and a teaching tool. <p>Bert Esselink has been active in localization for over a decade. After graduating in technical translation and taking university classes in programming and computational linguistics, he worked for several years as software localizer, localization engineer, and technical project manager at International Software Products. In 1996 he joined ALPNET in Amsterdam as localization manager, before taking on the role of globalization manager, developing internal production quality standards. In January 2000 Bert joined Lionbridge to head up their globalization consulting services. </p>
