Beginner's Guide to Localization
In the global world, it helps if your site can speak multiple languages - even if you don't. Taking an existing site and localizing it, or building a new site with a localization requirement can be a daunting task if you've never tackled it before. Fortunately, there are some solid guidelines that can help smooth the way for a seamless launch of your fully translated site.
We'll discuss common pitfalls in new development, things to look for on existing sites that are adding a localization element and maybe even throw in a few examples of what NOT to do if there's time.
