Spanish term or phrase: Maquinas Virtuales localizadas
This is for a translation agency, they are explaining their system:
There are zero google hits for: (with an s or z in localised)
"Localised Virtual Machine" and" "Localised Virtual Computer.
Anyone know what they are talking about?

"Para poder solucionar cualquier problema en cualquier idioma, disponemos de Maquinas Virtuales localizadas y de cualquier sistema operativo."

localized Virtual Machines
Explanation:
localization is, as you may well know, getting software, etc. working in different languages (others will know more about this than I!), while "virtual machine" is a common enough term in the world of software programming, meaning (very roughly) software that emulates other software.

It sounds as if they're talking about software that's been localized (localised in UK?) to work for any language need.

Notes to answerer
Asker: This was my original take on it too, but I was bothered that I got not a single Google hit (using quotation marks).


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Leopoldo Gurman: Looks like they´re selling something like a help desk and that they´ll be able to replicate problems and to guide users in any language and OS using their localized VMs.

  -> Leopoldo - agreed; SP - I think your google search got nothing b/c, while VMs are plentiful, localized VMs might not get too much press? A thought...
