Translation and Localization: What’s the difference?

When it comes to international trade and e-commerce to expand your business, you may have heard the words translation and localization. But what do they mean and how are they different? 

Translation is the first step in localization. It makes your content available in your target language. To localize this content, you may need to take local language variations into account. For example, English is spoken in the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. While US English readers can comprehend a website written in UK English, they may be confused with different vocabulary and may cause confusion.
