Localize graphics using Adobe Photoshop CS5

When it comes to translating text, we’re not all that slow. Modern memory translation systems can translate huge quantities of text, accurately and efficiently. Translating images? I don’t think so. Translated screenshots are usually taken by the localization vendors, and is typically a manual activity. It is costly in terms of time and money.

In this blog post, I propose a methodology to leverage data-driven graphics capability of Adobe Photoshop to generate translated screenshots. And because a vast majority of us are technical writers and not graphic designers, I’m also including small tutorial so that you can understand the process from a practical perspective.
