Scout Localization Capability Guide


Localization (also known by the numeronym L10n) is the process of implementing the language and other cultural norms for a specific area. In addition to its default locale, the United States, Scout is localized with French for locals such as France or Montreal, with Spanish for locals such as Spain and Mexico, and with Portuguese for Brazil, all of which support dispatchers' ease of use.

Making the move to adjust software for different languages begins with a process called internationalization. Internationalization (also known by the numeronym i18n) refers to designing computer software that is adaptable to different cultures without the need to rewrite the software. Internationalization prepares software to acclimate easily to the language plus the date, time, and measurement standards for specific locales. Scout is internationalized, which allows it to be adjusted for a specific culture as a repeatable, accurate process.
