Localisation Focus – The International Journal of Localisation (ISSN 1649-2358) is published and distributed annually and has been published since 1996 by the Localisation Research Centre (LRC), University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland. Articles are peer reviewed and indexed by major scientific services, thereby affording contributors increased recognition for their work.

Background

Conceived in 1996 as a plain two-colour newsletter printed in-house in the LRC, the newsletter progressed to become a full-colour, professionally designed and formatted 32-page journal distributed to localisation professionals all over the world. The publication has had four main phases:

  1. Software Localisation–The Quarterly Newsletter of the Localisation Resources Centre
    This phase ran from July 1996 until December 1996. At this time the LRC was known as the Localisation Resources Centre and was based in University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland.

     
  2. Localisation Ireland
    This phase ran from March 1997 until March 2002. It was during this time (1999) that the LRC moved from University College Dublin to its present location in the University of Limerick and changed its title from the Localisation Resources Centre to the Localisation Research Centre.
     
  3. Localisation Focus - The International Journal of Localisation
    This phase ran from June 2002 to December 2006. Within this time, the publication developed a more research-driven content, a move that was reflected not just in the title change but also by the increased, peer-reviewed research content. Peer-reviewed research content first appeared in March 2005 when Localisation Focus merged with the the International Journal of Localisation with the aim of offering researchers the opportunity to publish longer, more in-depth, peer-reviewed research papers.
  4. Localisation Focus - the International Journal of Localisation
    This phase began in January 2007 and reflects the final stage in the journey towards a totally research-driven publication that will be published once a year with an emphasis on high quality peer-reviewed content.
