ABOUT THE PROJECT
Broadening reach through continued worldwide expansion
Aiming to expand its global presence into Thailand and neighboring countries, Spotify partnered with Andovar for user interface localization. In addition to translating and localizing the Spotify UI into Thai, we also provided translations into a variety of other Asian languages, translated marketing materials, and tested everything to verify the quality of our work.
To assist Spotify’s Thailand launch, we provided UI localization, translation, editing, terminology management and testing.
We translated materials into six languages: Thai, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Indonesian, Malay and Japanese.
Over the course of several years, Andovar localized multiple asset types covering hundreds of thousands of words of digital content.
TMS for success
To meet Spotify’s localization needs, we integrated our workflow with Spotify's TMS partner, Smartling, enabling hyper-efficient processes to be maintained.
