Books for localization


My team is looking for materials to help us with upcoming localization projects. We will be localizing (not translating) software and web products designed and developed in the U.S. to other countries, with Japan being the first in our plans. I’ve been doing quite a bit of research online and found a few websites that are mildly useful.

Pixar takes on product design

For people who don't want to spend the $10+ to see Pixar's latest
movie, "Ratatouille" (IMHO hysterical), I wanted to encourage people
who are iPod/iPhone/iTunes inclined to pay $2 (or find a friend who
spent $2) to watch the short that Pixar released with this movie,
called "Lifted".

It is even more hysterical than than feature film and to make it
relevant to this list, shows a great example of a product that was
definitely NOT designed by Jobs & Ive!

Anyway, enjoy!
