Yes but unfortunately there are very few companies, if any (even very large) that can afford to hire 100 people fluent in living languages to work exclusively on context translations for each software project.

And keeping in mind that 100 is not even close to the number of identified living languages. But it likely is close to what one might consider a viable market.

So one just hopes that one can get by.

Trouble came soon after, first when they realized some words had multiple meanings.


I have worked for a number of companies that had no problems using services to provide translations based on provided text.

And there are more difficult problems than just providing the context for a specific word.

gave up on using localized translations and stuck to English.


France and Quebec (province of Canada) both have laws that basically state that a company cannot require an employee to speak/read any language except French. So if you bring in that software there the company could end up with a number of employees sitting around staring at the walls all day.

And the governments stipulate that the software they use must be in French. You can't get the contract without agreeing to that.

If programming was easy they wouldn't need people to do it.
