Internationalization Recommendation?

I was hoping that folks with experience in internationalization/translation of products might be able to weigh in here.

In a mobile application design, we're using a linear next/last navigation where next is on the right and last is on the left. The user can also swipe between screens.


When it gets translated for cultures that read right to left, should next be at the left and last be at the right?

mobile interface design guidelines

Hi all,

For one of my project i have to design interface for handheld devices. Does
anyone can point me to a good BOOK and any other literature which could help
me in knowing the guidelines or more importantly patterns of application
design for mobile devices.

Also do any one know any particular studies where people qunatify these
guidelines and standards and generated user interfaces for different mobile
devices automatically?

thanks a lot!

Examples of Good Customer Support Sites

When users can't find the help they need contextually and land on a
customer support site, how can we create a good experience for them?

I've been looking at:

Adobe
http://www.adobe.com/support/

Apple
http://www.apple.com/support/

Amazon
http://tinyurl.com/2wwact

Does anyone have examples of effective customer/technical support
sites?

I'm interested in best practices on surfacing relevant help
topics/tools to users so they can self-serve with ease.

Thanks!

iPhone SDK

So, are any of you excited by the opportunities offered by the SDK
announcements yesterday? Having access to multi-touch, gestures, the
accelerometer, and location-based services—the possibilities for
innovative, or at least unique/interesting/fun interactions has me
salivating. I know nothing about Objective-C, but I sure am tempted
to get my feet wet.

"Confirm password" field - Superfluous?

I have a design for a new user registration form in which I am proposing to
not use a "Confirm password" field and would like your feedback on this
decision.
The form will have 4 fields, all of which are required:

1: User name (This will be supplied to the user prior to their using this
form)
2: Password
3: Hint question
4: Hint answer

The form also has some explanatory text that describes the use of the hint
question and answer which is that the pair of fields will be used when the
user forgets their password.

Adobe Fireworks for wire framing

Recently I have been getting increasingly frustrated by the
limitations of Omnigraffle and the complexity and bugs of using
Visio, not to mention having to switching between operating systems
to use Visio when i am a mac user.

So I am very interested in the increase in talk of people using
Fireworks for wire framing, what i read about it makes perfect sense
with the ability to share layers across specific pages, making
symbols to reuse across the document, so a footer for example can be
a symbol, you edit the symbol and the footers across the sites pages
will update, not to mention master pag
