Moravia is a company that provides translation and localisation services for several industries, notably engineering and the life sciences. We recommend their post about localising for consumers in the United States. US residents don’t often think about the challenges of localising for their own region. But, for foreign companies entering a US market, localisation is an important concern. Based in the Czech Republic, Moravia’s blog provides a fascinating new perspective.

The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) is an organisation for professionals in the localisation industry.

LingoHub provides online translation tools and services, with a workflow designed to integrate into the product development process. Their article about the difference between a translation memory and a term base is a recommended read for newcomers to the localisation industry.
