Lingoport’s Globalyzer was designed to bring internationalization to the forefront and facilitate making software world-ready a priority. Globalyzer generates an assessment of internationalization readiness and applications for real-time i18n detection, validation, and resolution. Globalyzer finds and fixes internationalization (i18n) issues in source code including: embedded strings, locale-sensitive methods/functions/classes (e.g. date/time, number formatting, collation, encoding and more), custom programming patterns, and static files.
Getting Started Videos
The following videos introduce Globalyzer: Globalyzer Quick Tutorial organizes the videos below in one logical sequence.
Pre Flight Check
Globalyzer is used as part of i18n projects. Before starting off on a project, it is recommended to do a Pre Flight Check to help guide how to set up your Globalyzer projects.
Globalyzer allows users to scan a number of source code in different programming languages:
- C/C++ (many variations)
- HTML (in various web files)
- SQL (Oracle, MS SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL)
- Visual Basic (Classic, .NET)
Globalyzer detects internationalization issues and assists you in fixing those issues.
Globalyzer is flexible in its programming language support and can be adapted to support any language not listed.
Globalyzer consists of two main components: the Globalyzer Server and the Globalyzer Clients. The Globalyzer Clients consist of the Globalyzer Workbench, the Globalyzer Command Line, Globalyzer Lite, Globalzyer API, and the Globalyzer Maven Plugin.
Globalyzer Workbench - provides a fully functional code analysis and editing environment for finding, fixing, testing, and reporting on internationalization issues in a wide variety of programming languages.
Globalyzer Command Line - create automated Globalyzer scans as part of your continuous build integration so that you can report and track internationalization issues over time.
Globalyzer API - Allows you to create Globalyzer projects and scans, execute scans, and generate reports from a Java program.
Globalyzer Lite - Application for scanning code for internationalization issues on the fly and generating corresponding reports. It does not require an external database.
Globalyzer Maven Plugin - Application for scanning MVN projects. Simply download and install the plugin into a private MVN repository and configure your pom.xml file to scan and generate reports.
Globalyzer can be licensed in a hosted account configuration, where Lingoport hosts the Globalyzer Server, or as an on premises Globalyzer Server, hosted within your company’s network. Globalyzer is licensed based on organizational use as internationalization is a team development activity and ongoing process. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You can also try Globalyzer with a Demo Account. Demo Accounts have two limitations: 1) Globalyzer limits the number of internationalization issues it will report on to approximately 100. 2) You will not be able to see or modify Locale-Sensitive Methods for your Globalyzer Rule Sets.
