Abstract

Summary: The process of localization of the software, and therefore of the digital learning resources, is divided into three parts: the first part is adjusting to the "local environment" (locale), the second part is a translation and adaptation of the user interface and the third part is the translation and adaptation of the documentation. The third part includes the localization of metadata. Metadata contain all relevant information about digital learning resources and therefore they are the most important element in searching and retrieving. The fact is that the discovery of learning resources that have "English" metadata is much easier than in the case of learning objects that have "non-English" metadata. There are two issues identified that generally affecting the search and discovery of the requested data in localized repositories of digital resources: the problem of grammatical rules and the problem of transliteration. Keywords: digital learning resources, metadata, localization.
