Book Description

12 July 1996 Computer Science
Leading authorities from around the world discuss the latest topics in international user–interface design.

With most major companies in the computer industry depending on exports for 50 percent or more of their sales, user–interface design teams face a major challenge in making their products both useful and accessible to the global marketplace. It is no longer enough to simply offer a product translated in ten to twenty different languages. Users also want a product that acknowledges their unique cultural characteristics and business practices.

In International User Interfaces, Elisa del Galdo and Jakob Nielsen head a team of acknowledged international authorities who confront some of the problems currently facing international user–interface developers, including:
∗ International Usability Engineering.
∗ Developing a Cultural Model.
∗ Arabization of Graphical User Interfaces.
∗ Managing a Multiple–Language Document System.
∗ An Intelligent Lexical Management System for Multilingual Machine Translation.
∗ A Chinese Text Display Supported by an Algorithm for Chinese Segmentation.
∗ Breaking the Language Barrier with Graphics.
∗ Cultural Issues That Can Affect Training

2.0 out of 5 stars A mish-mash of articles that's not very actionable. 28 April 2001
By Al Sargent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had recently purchased the NielsenNorman group's International User Interfaces whitepaper, ..., was impressed with the whitepaper, and consequently had high hopes for this book. I was pretty disappointed. It's a mish-mash of articles, only a few of which were very actionable. One such article, in chapter 3, is pretty good in that it covers to what degree various cultures communicate explicitly versus non-explicitly. This fact alone is very useful to anyone doing usability testing or market research outside the US.
