Other Factors to Consider
Text is the major consideration in creating a multilingual application. However, there are other aspects that must be thought out as well. Although we try to create universal icons, some of them don't translate very well. I remember arriving in France and being told not to give anyone the OK hand gesture. In America, it represents that things are going fine. In France, it is confused with the sign that indicates that "you're a dork." It is important to test out your application with a native user before thinking it is completed.
