One of the most significant challenges facing database software publishers is globalizing their products to tap into potentially profitable overseas business opportunities. The challenges of making products work overseas are many, ranging from budgeting for globalization projects to requiring developers to be skilled in localization. Over the years, software publishers have developed and implemented various tools and processes for globalization and localization. While there is considerable literature available on software development lifecycles and case studies, few studies have focused on globalization of database software. This thesis will examine the extent to which database publishers are using internationalization tools and processes to help them solve globalization challenges. Thesis deliverables will be specified tool evaluations and workarounds for database localization.
