What is the difference between localization and translation? Are they both the same?

No, localization and translation are not the same. They both are different. Professional translation services involve rendering text from one language to another language, keeping the meanings of the text the same. Whereas, localization services involve the transformation of the entire business product, service, or content from one location to another, including language as well as cultural adaptation along with other comprehensive components. Localization companies help you grow in foreign markets.
