In a fully globalized market in which most of the programs and applications contain multiple terms whose meaning does not yet appear in the dictionaries, nor in any reliable terminological source, the anglicisms are constant and the translator is permanently in the dichotomy between linguistic purity and the use of terminology in another language.
The translator's job in the localization process involves many more technical challenges and language difficulties than anyone could imagine. While it is true that the user manual of a computer program does not present excessive complexities at a grammatical or syntactic level, the translator faces the opposite problem. Condensing in a few words instructions and orders with which the user must know what is the action to be performed at each moment, as well as the small physical space that the translator has to translate a concept expressed in three or four words in English ( very synthetic language in which computer programs or applications are normally created).
Within the computer sector, a great diversity of documents can be translated: software, manuals, applications, web pages, teaching material, video games, etc. The incorrect translation of, for example, a user manual, will make it inefficient and will deteriorate the image of your product. Instead, a product with correctly translated documentation will benefit the user experience and have a positive perception of it.
