What is the difference between translation and localization?

Translation is the conversion of written or spoken content from one language to another. Localization goes beyond translation to tailor content to the specific cultural, linguistic, and other needs of a particular region or market. Localization takes into account cultural nuances, regional differences, and local regulations to ensure your content is culturally sensitive and appropriate for your audience.
