We teach your wearable technology new languages so that you can reach new customers.
What is wearable technology localization?
Wearables, by definition, are products including clothing, footwear, or accessories that incorporate sensors enabling them to monitor and respond to the user or the environment around them. Wearable technology, though still in its infancy, is a growing market and brings new challenges when it comes to localization.
Companies developing the technology need to consider many aspects when localizing wearable technologies for new markets, such as demographic preferences, text translation, multilingual voice control, quality assurance, and more.
Custom Technology Localization Solutions
Summa Linguae Technologies creates solutions for companies that are expanding into international markets. Localization is no longer simply translating text from one language to another, and our solutions reflect this.
We have been involved in localization of many of the leading emerging technologies that change the way we interact with our devices and we are always excited about what is to come next. From in-country market studies to data collection, annotation, translation and field testing, we take the time to understand your needs and partner with you to make sure your product is ready for a successful international release.
Wearable technology is here to stay, whether for personal use, in the workspace, or at public events. To make the user experience feel natural and seamless, cultural differences must be considered in the development and localization process.
Our goal is to allow your customers to have more natural interactions with your technology—for example, through voice controls.
Different cultures respond differently to certain voices and tones. A market study we ran showed that the gender preference of a device’s voice varied across cultures, which led to the decision to use a different voice and gender for the device’s voice assistant depending on the country.
