» Quite a rotten localisation of a perfect (A)pple
By Jakov Milicevic | Published 02/24/2019 | Localization and Globalization | Recommendation:
The purpose of this article is to present examples of poor localisation of Apple’s tangible and intangible content into Croatian. That content does not meet the basic principles of the Croatian standard. The opinions and arguments presented in this article are based on descriptive and normative grammars and dictionaries of the contemporary Croatian language, as well as recommendations by the leading institutions for the Croatian language (Institut za hrvatski jezik i jezikoslovlje[1], Leksikografski zavod Miroslava Krleže[2], Matica Hrvatska[3]), available in written or electronic form, as well as by the leading language experts who are users of Apple products. This article is only a part of a series of articles dealing with a poor localisation approach by Apple[4], one of the leading IT companies. The first article analyses the basic terminology used in the translation of iOS and MacOS UI strings.
