Translating Fusion Apps Customizations: Composers mean Usable Apps in Any Language

Quick shoutout for the Fusion Applications (Cloud Applications to you) Developer Relations blog post about translating Fusion apps customizations using composers and other tools and utilities provided by Oracle. Great to see Fusion help customizations included in the post, as well as software, and it also includes a nice heads up on what's coming to enable customers to make changes to text themselves in Release 8 of Oracle's Cloud Applications.

I am proud to say that I logged the enhancements for what's coming in Release 8  to come to life and also wrote a spec for its requirements based on the customer research done internationally through the Oracle Usability Advisory Board).

Remember,  copywriting is design and translated versions means reflecting local UX requirements too!

Nice post guys!

Context in User Experience? Meet Use of Context in Translation. Result: Great UX Globally

What makes for a great, compelling and modern user experience? Context. Context of use, context of device, context of task, all revolving around a source of truth in the cloud: that customer, that employee, that sale, that general ledger. And what makes for a great translation (or localization as the rest of the industry would say)? Context.

Here's a presentation I delivered at Localization World, London 2013 that shows how the two can work together. For me, context is just as useful for implementers and developers as it is for the translation team. And certainly providing the context for a great string in the UI, in any language, is what makes for a great experience.
