Agtonomy, an ag-tech software start-up, has been working with Fixposition to integrate Fixposition’s Vision Fusion Technology to provide an element of its precise global positioning solution in its TeleFarmer solution.
Agtonomy’s TeleFarmer solution is comprised of innovative software, a suite of apps, and an electric vehicle reference tractor.
By utilizing Fixposition as one of its localization sensors, Agtonomy is able to achieve even more reliable and more efficient performance in how it knows the position of the agricultural vehicles it controls. [Read more…] about Agtonomy selects Fixposition for farm vehicle GPS
Arabic is one of the world’s ancient languages. It is the official language of 26 states. Being the 5th most spoken language and with a huge gaming community, the Arabic language has unique attributes as a language. It is quite different from the other European languages.
That’s why the biggest community businesses have to opt for Arabic translation services to reach Arab audiences. Arab countries are among the top ones having the maximum number of users and game players.
The Arab market is the most revenue-generating in terms of games. That further motivates the game owners to go for services targeting the Arab world. However, localization could get tough and complicated for Arabic audiences due to the Arabic language and its complexities. [Read more…] about What Are the Challenges of Arabic Game Localization?
