What is Localisation?

What is Localisation?

In short: it is a step of the translation process. Regarding films, series or video games, this step tends to be categorised as a separate process or activity. However, it is still translation, but with an additional focus on the target culture. For example, it is one thing to translate symbols, metonymy, metaphors or allegory from one language to another, it is a totally different thing to carry over the feelings and the hidden meanings behind them. Mostly, symbolism is very different between cultures and may totally mean opposite things. As a result, it is an important step in translation, for this ensures that the true meaning is conveyed.

Happiness lies within appreciating the little things in life.
