A service localisation platform
MetadataShow full item record
The fundamental purpose of service-oriented computing is the ability to quickly provide software and hardware resources to global users. The main aim of service localisation is to provide a method for facilitating the internationalisation and localisation of software services by allowing them to be adapted to different locales. We address lingual localisation by providing a service translation using the latest web services technology to adapt services to different languages and currency conversion by using real-time data provided by the European Central Bank. Units and Regulatory Localisations are performed by a conversion mapping, which we have generated for a subset of locales. The aim is to investigate a standardised view on the localisation of services by using runtime and middleware services to deploy a localisation implementation. Our contribution is a localisation platform consisting of a conceptual model classifying localisation concerns and the definition of a number of specific platform services.
