It's economics, pure and simple Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

It's simply a matter of economics. All of the software vendors that I have worked with (quite a few, in fact) have all complained about the time, effort, and cost of "localizing" products. In most cases, the foreign language versions lag the product release by months. Why do they do it? Because it's economically worth it. They only release languages where they know that they will get a return on their investment. With free trials, however, it's hard enough to recoup your costs anyway, much less to recoup localization costs for the software, the intro presentations, the tutorials, and so on.. I hate to speak for the vendors, but as a former business owner, I can't say that I would spend the time and money either.
