Title: LOCALIZATION OF SOFTWARE IN LOGISTICS

Keywords: information, information system, IT system, software localization.

Abstract: The author presents the problems connected with localization of logistic software. The following factors affecting the process of localization are discussed: information and it role, globalization, internationality and the command of foreign languages. Three types of localization depending on the type of interaction are taken into consideration. The main emphasis is put on the efficiency decrease, which is observed in the case of logistic software as a result of communication distortions. SAP R/3 logistic software was used as an example illustrating the localization problems. Three situations have been presented namely: lack of localization, partial localization and deficient complete localization, which is hard to understand for the users. The author concludes that even high-quality software in the case of the lack of or partial localization becomes less efficient and effective than in the case of complete localization. But the lack of localization finds its justification in the age of globalization.
