Multilingualization : An answer to companies marketing their products globally

Multilingualization : An answer to companies marketing their products globally

Abstract
Multilingualization is the process of making digital products and systems accessible to all people in various geographic regions in their own native language. A truly global product is based on multilingual character tags in which all the displayed language characters appear fully in the local language. Approximately 80% of the world’s population is composed of non-English speakers. If consumer product companies with global manufacturing network do not multilingualize their products, the digital divide will thwart the global reach of their products.

Excerpts from the Paper
The first step towards Multilingualizing would be to develop a single international Unicode code base or code stream including double byte, Unicode and bidirectional support for Unicode / UTF – 8. While developing a design for Internationalization, the following functional aspects form the key role in decision making for the Multilingualization. Following questions need to be answered. Does the UI only need to be I18Nized and displayed in localized mode? Does the file I/O need to be I18Nized? Does the system have heavy string processing or byte level processing? Answers to these questions guide strategy of Multilingualization.
