A Cloud Broker for Service Adaptation Based on Interface Localization
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of the Cloud “as-a-service” concept is provisioning of software services to facilitate access to resources to a range of different users in different locations. Service adaptation through localization in this context can facilitate the internationalization and localization of services by allowing their adaption to different locales. Three localization dimensions are investigated: (1) lingual localization by providing service-level language translation techniques to adopt services to different languages; (2) regulatory localization by providing standards-based mappings to achieve regulatory compliance with regionally varying laws, standards, and regulations; and (3) social localization by taking into account preferences and customs for individuals and the groups or communities in which they participate. The objective is to support and implement an explicit modelling of aspects that are relevant to localization and runtime support consisting of tools and middleware services to automating the deployment based on models of locales, driven by the two localization dimensions.
