IBM i Software Localization

In addition to today’s most popular application platforms, Interpro offers multilingual software localization services for the IBM i mid-range computer (formerly AS/400 and iSeries). IBM i is an integrated operating environment boasting a robust architecture, exceptional security and business resilience. Software running on this platform has provided innovation and value to companies worldwide for over 25 years.

Interpro is one of the very few software localization service providers in the world with the engineering expertise, tools, and experience to offer comprehensive IBM i software localization. In fact, Interpro was founded initially to offer National Language Versions of IBM i User Interfaces, PNLGRP Help, and related user documentation. For companies doing business in Asian markets, we also offer comprehensive Double-Byte Character Set (DBCS) enablement services for this platform.

Working with localization technology designed specifically for IBM i user interfaces, translatable literals – including conditional literals – embedded within DDS, RPG, CL code and MSGF are translated, revised, and proofread in a WSYIWYG environment. Working in this environment dramatically decreases rework time due to out-of-context translations or translated literals exceeding available field lengths on the screens.

Our IBM i pedigree

Whatever the language of your target IBM i application software audience may be, Interpro’s successful track record of providing localization services for this platform in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 and 17100:2015 standards ensures that you will be able to connect with your clients in their native languages, worldwide.

We would welcome the opportunity to explore with you how Interpro can assist you with your IBM i application localization project.
