When the rule sets are deemed acceptable, the Workbench user may save the Globalyzer project configuration by exporting it to a file, project.gproj. They may then push the project.gproj to the repository for use by other Workbench users and/or a continuous globalization system.

Installation Components

  • The Globalyzer Server (Server system) is hosted by Lingoport. If the Globalyzer Server is on site, the customer will have to provide a Linux system and install the Globalyzer Server software.
  • The Developer Machine (I18n specialist desktop) is used by an internationalization specialist who will use the Globalyzer clients (probably Workbench and Globalyzer Lite) to analyze code.
  • Although not shown in the picture, the Dashboard System could be installed on a Linux system to illustrate progress with issues.

Installation Notes

To install the Workbench, login to the Globalyzer Server, download the Globalyzer Client installer for the platform you are running on, and run the installer.
