1. What are the terms app and software?
Software is a made-up word by J. W. Tukey and a counterpart to the much older word hardware, which among other things, designates physical components of a computer. As a generic term, software stands for all executable programs and the data belonging to them. Software can be categorized as follows:
System software that allows application software to communicate with the hardware of a device.
Support software that provides tools for the creation and development of programs.
Application software that performs a single task such as educational programs, office applications and database systems
The term application software is often abbreviated as an app. These are computer programs that perform a function that is not necessary for the functioning of the system software.
Since the appearance of the first smartphones and app stores, the term app has been used in German-speaking countries, primarily for mobile apps. These can be installed on mobile devices such as smartphones or tablet computers. But there are also mobile web apps that do not need to be installed and can be accessed via a web browser. The term is now also used by current operating systems for desktop application software.

3. What needs to be considered for a professional app localization or software translation?
For an app or software to reach its target group internationally, it is necessary to have it professionally translated. Not only the contents of the app or software are translated, but also the user interfaces so that the user has no problems with the operation. Therefore, in an app localization or software translation, a stylistically flawless and correct translation into the target language must be guaranteed.
