Global Software Development is an area that has been recently highlighted. Translation is usually an issue that people associate with adapting software for a specific country but it is much more than that. Through text representation and data formatting you can go deep into cultural aspects that affect the user interface and even the core functionality.
In this thesis we will discuss just how these matters can affect development of global software. To carry out the investigation we analyzed current approaches and references and build up an extended methodology with suggestions to develop global software applications.
