Localisation Focus

The International Journal of Localisation

Localisation Focus–The International Journal of Localisation provides a forum for localisation professionals and researchers to discuss and present their localisation-related work, covering all aspects of this multi-disciplinary field, including software engineering and HCI, tools and technology development, cultural aspects, translation studies, human language technologies (including machine and machine assisted translation), project management, workflow and process automation, education and training, and details of new developments in the localisation industry. Proposed contributions are peer-reviewed thereby ensuring a high standard of published material. Localisation Focus–The International Journal of Localisation is distributed worldwide to libraries and localisation professionals, including engineers, managers, trainers, linguists, researchers and students. Indexed on a number of databases, this journal affords contributors increased recognition for their work. Localisation-related articles, book reviews, perspectives, insights and correspondence are all welcome.

LocConnect: Orchestrating Interoperability in a Service-oriented Localisation Architecture

Volume 10 Issue 1

Authors: Asanka Wasala, Ian O'Keeffe, Reinhard Schäler


Interoperability is the key to the seamless integration of different entities. However, while it is one of the most challenging problems in localisation, interoperability has not been discussed widely in the relevant literature. This paper describes the design and implementation of a novel environment for the inter-connectivity of distributed localisation components, both open source and proprietary. The proposed solution promotes interoperability through the adoption of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) framework based on established localisation standards. We describe a generic use scenario and the architecture of the environment that allows us to study interoperability issues in localisation processes. This environment was successfully demonstrated at the CNGL Public Showcase in Microsoft, Ireland, November 2010.
