Agile development meets just-in-time translation

The software industry is increasingly agile, employing an iterative and incremental approach to application development. As such, frequent updates are inevitable, leading to constant, fragmented translation needs. Stepes’ just-in-time (JIT) translation model caters perfectly to these continuous translation needs, allowing developers more time to focus on their software and still gain time-to-market advantage.

Software Localization

Stepes provides comprehensive translation and engineering solutions for software localization. We have one of the largest localization engineering teams in the industry for pre- and post-translation processing, programming, encoding (Unicode, double-byte, multi-byte), software testing, and bug fixing.


Localization Testing

The purpose of localization testing is to ensure that the quality of the localized application matches that of the source product. The localization testing environment is the software installed in the operating system of the target languages.


Cosmetic Testing

For software localization, cosmetic testing is an essential step to ensure the localized GUI is free of truncation, misalignment and other layout issues. In addition to employing one of the largest localization testing teams in the industry to efficiently perform cosmetic testing, we have developed a framework for automated test case execution.


UI Localization

Using Stepes for the localization of both the software user interface and user manual guarantees that the same linguists are working on all components of a particular project, ensuring translation consistency and minimizing costs.

Linguistic Testing

Linguistic testing is the process of systematically verifying the translated strings on each software screen to ensure correct translations. Stepes uses only professional in-country translators with subject matter expertise for linguistic testing and verification.
