Portland, OR – Lingo Systems, a translation and localization company located in Portland, Oregon, and the ATA, the American Translators Association, have published the fourth edition of The Guide to Translation and Localization: Preparing Products for the Global Marketplace. The 104-page guide covers all the steps necessary for mastering the localization process. Readers will find the technical strategies needed to successfully prepare their documentation, software, training and marketing materials, and Web sites for the global marketplace. Lingo Systems specializes in the translation and localization of Mac hardware and software.

“This book is intended to be both educational and fun, “says John Watkins, Lingo Systems Vice President of Operations and the books editor. “The previous three issues have all been award winners and very popular with our clients, the public, and students alike. Indeed, it is Lingo Systems dedication to educating people about the translation and localization process that continues to fuel our desire to keep publishing the guidebook,” says Watkins. The Guide to Translation and Localization: Preparing Products for the Global Marketplace (ISBN 0-9703948) is available free of charge from Lingo Systems.

decimales: coma y punto son signos válidos

decimales: coma y punto son signos válidos | The Translation World | Scoop.it
El signo para separar los decimales al expresar un número en cifras puede ser un punto o una coma.
Ambos signos tienen uso en los países hispanohablantes, pero en México y el Caribe se prefiere el punto, según la costumbre anglosajona, mientras que en España y el Cono Sur se prefiere la coma, según la costumbre francoalemana.
Por este motivo, en la Ortografía de la lengua española, de las Academias de la Lengua, se señala que, «con el fin de promover un proceso tendente hacia la unificación, se recomienda el uso del punto como signo separador de los decimales», al tiempo …

(EN) (PDF) - Historical Glossary of Terms for Education Development | Richard & Vithanya Noonan | The Translation World | Scoop.it

"This Glossary is intended as an aid for reading and writing English-language documents about education development in Laos. It lists more than 2000 abbreviations, terms, expressions, and definitions in official or common usage found in literature specifically concerning development of education and training in Lao PDR.

Where usage is primarily associated with one organization, that fact is noted. No organization has a monopoly on words, however, and terms originating in one organizational context can migrate to others, sometimes with slightly modified form or meaning. Wherever possible, such variations are noted. Terms originating in individual projects are entered into the Glossary only if they gain significant usage outside the immediate project context."
