What is the difference between translation and localization?

The act of translation is rewriting content in a different language. Localization goes one step further and makes sure the content is translated according to the specific end users.

For example, a website translated from English to Spanish is simply translation. But, what if the website is catered specifically to Latin America rather than Spain? In that case, the website needs to be localized to Latin American Spanish. Why? It has different dialects, idioms, and phrases. Moreover, its speakers have different cultures and attitudes which must be accounted for. That is how you ensure the translated content has the most impact.
