In this presentation we will reflect an innovation initiative on the localization industry, particularly to a solution (tool and process) to connect user interface (UI) screens with strings enabling tools to locate exact target strings on each screen. Today, companies have problems linking strings by value due to ambiguous context for identical values (for example, several “Home” occurrences in a project). Additionally, many strings are not linked for several reasons — not captured, out of scope, obsolete and so on. Therefore, looking up strings given a screen will always be more effective than looking up screens given a string. Be ready to apply it in your company UI validation process.

Takeaways: Attendees will see how a string linkage solution will increase productivity, save money and bring a higher quality of localized content.
