How thorough is Globalyzer in reviewing and modifying my code?
It is very thorough, but some of the detection and filtering specificity is controlled by the user. Globalyzer allows for strong detection and filtering controls using regular expressions, as well as built in search management capabilities. The more you learn Globalyzer's capabilities, the easier to refine your results.
With regard to modifying code, Globalyzer allows for the editing of code within its fully-functional IDE (Globalyzer Workbench), though you can use a different IDE to edit source code if you prefer. Globalyzer helps you navigate right from reports to instances in your code that need externalization or further analysis. You can also choose to mark issues with a comment for later review. Globalyzer does not modify code without the intervention of a developer. Globalyzer identifies issues, but makes no changes to code.
Why would I use Globalyzer versus my own scripts?
Globalyzer and the entire Lingoport Suite encapsulates a terrific amount of research and development regarding internationalization issues and how to resolve them. It would be extremely difficult to develop an internationalization detection script that is as comprehensive and powerful, much less easily leveraged across your software team. And, even if you could come up with your own scripts, wouldn’t your team be better off working on your product, rather than on internationalization issue detection?
Globalyzer was first released in 2001 and has been continually developed ever since, allowing for the inclusion of features desired from our broad customer base. Globalyzer in conjunction with the Lingoport Suite is an end-to-end solution for localization and internationalization from the localization manager to developers and linguistic QA.
