Understand localization

Localization refers to the adaptation of the product to meet the needs of a specific locale through language, culture, or other relevant factors. Translation is a key element of the localization process. Through translation, Zoho Creator enables app owners to make their app consumable by a larger audience by connecting with consumers on a deeper level.
