Software localization tool.
Passolo can handle various software specific file formats, including executable programs, resource files and XML based files. Text strings can be translated into numerous languages including Asian languages (Unicode) and right-to-left scripts like Hebrew and Arabic.
Software localization can be done without access to the source code or the developers and can begin even before the final release of the software is available.
Passolo ensures compilation, exchange and processing of translation data.
- WYSIWYG editors to adapt the user interface of a software. This includes editors for dialogs, menus, bitmaps, icons, and cursors.

- The Pseudo Translation checks the application for localization suitability before actual translation begins.
- A QA feature can check the spelling of the texts and enables automatic recognition of truncated or overlapping text and incorrect allocation of shortcuts, accelerators and access keys.
