어도비 소프트웨어의 현지화 작업은 다음 3 단계에 걸쳐 이루어지고 있습니다.

  • 인터네셔널리제이션
  • 로컬리제이션, 번역
  • 품질 관리 테스팅

제품에 따라 약간의 차이가 있지만 대부분의 어도비 소프트웨어들은 우선 제품 계발과정에 현지화를 용이하게위해 소프트웨어 엔지니어 작업을 거치게 됩니다. 이 작업이 완료되면 번역과 현지화 작업에 들어가게 됩니다. 현지화 작업은 한국내 번역 현지화 서비스를  제공하는 파트너들을 통해 이루어지고 있읍니다. 번역된 소프트웨어와 각종 사용 설멍서들은 최종 출시되기 까지 끊임없는 품질관리 과정이 반복됩니다.

어도비내 현지화 팀은 미국, 캐나다, 중국, 인도에 위치하고 있으며, 현지화 서비스 파트너들은 전 세계에 분포되어 있습니다. 어도비 국제화 팀은 끊이없는 이노베이션을 통헤 신속하고 정확한 현지화 작업을 위해 관련 기술과 도구를 계발하는데 항상 노력하고 있습니다.

This article was originally written in English. Text in other languages was provided by machine translation.

We are continuing to expand our presence in the mobile space.  Read this news article from BusinessWire on the three Adobe digital imaging apps for iPad and the SDK.  Here are some highlights:

  • Adobe Color Lava allows creatives to use their fingertips to mix colors on the iPad, creating custom color swatches and themes to transfer back into Photoshop.
  • Adobe Eazel takes advantage of cutting-edge painting technology by letting digital artists create rich realistic paintings with their fingertips, and introduces a new kind of interaction between “wet” and “dry” paints. These paintings can then be sent directly to Photoshop CS5 for compositing or for taking the artwork further.
  • Adobe Nav increases workflow efficiency by letting users select and control Photoshop tools using the iPad as the input surface, customize the toolbar, browse and zoom in on up to 200 open Photoshop files, or easily create new files.
  • Adobe Photoshop Touch Software Development Kit (SDK) enables developers to build tablet applications that interact with Photoshop from Android, BlackBerry PlayBook and iOS devices.
