There is a big difference between localizing courseware and localizing regular documentation and software. Courseware is designed to make it easier and more intuitive for end users to learn knowledge and skills.
So seemingly simple courseware is often the platform for showing the latest technology. Therefore, localizing courseware will involve more resources.
Produce Localized Courseware
I. Localization of Courseware Content
II. Localization of Graphics in Courseware
III. Localization of Sounds in Courseware
Localization of Multimedia in Courseware
I. Update Texts, Pictures and Sounds
II. Sync Animations
Whether the latest version is used in the framework
Whether all content has been localized
Whether the localized interfaces still adapt to Chinese content (size of interface dialog box, if the Chinese is completely displayed, etc.)
Whether the courseware still functions normally after being localized (such as search, index, etc.)
Check Components Called
Whether each component called inside the framework needs to be adjusted
Whether the recording matches the corresponding script file
Check UI Vocabulary
Whether UI vocabulary on interfaces mentioned in recording is read correctly
Check Operating Functions
When checking UI vocabulary, also check if the recording has been adjusted accordingly to reflect operational difference of learning objects after localization
Check Sound Effects
Whether neighboring sentences in sound recordings obviously vary from each other in sound effect
Check Time Control
Whether the duration of sound recording varies from that of the source dramatically
Check Synchronization Issues
Sounds and highlighted parts of pictures (red frame, etc.) need to be synchronized, and so do sounds and operations.
Check Functional Issues
Steps involved in the presentation should be in the correct order, and they should actually be realized in learning objects.
Check Interface Issues
Content described by sounds should correspond to interfaces, especially when UI parts are involved. It should be checked against the source file when there are inconsistencies.
Whether a picture shakes or flashes when a description involves a series of pictures
Check Detailed Elements
When there is an example button action in the image, does the button change accordingly and is the mouse position correct
