When Robomow, one of our major clients, decided to move their help center to Zendesk, which entailed forgoing their traditional documentation formats (predominantly PDF files), we were tasked to devise a process for localizing their help center on Zendesk. We needed to find a way to port our well-established translation, editing and quality assurance procedures to Zendesk. In a collaborative effort with our client and Zendesk, we devised a localization process that can fit numerous Zendesk localization scenarios. And even though our process revealed some kinks in the system, which turned into major change requests, our localization process endures.
