C app internationalization and localization

C is a programming language designed by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Labs. C is very widely used, straightforward, and can be compiled to a number of platforms and operating systems. C is an imperative language, with a small number of keywords and a large number of mathematical operators. C is also a very low level programming language, which means it can communicate directly with hardware.

Best way to localize C apps

The first step is to extract the text to translate into language files. This process is called internationalization. The gettext library can be used to extract out the text to translate into PO files.

Once you have internationalized your C app, use a translation software localization tool such as WebTranslateIt to manage your localization workflow.

It is easy to translate a C app with WebTranslateIt. Create a project, upload your source language file in the File Manager and translate it on the Translation Interface.

The tools included in WebTranslateIt, such as Batch Operations, the Translation Memory or Machine Translation can help you translate that file automatically, faster and cost effectively.
