Notwithstanding the need for 1C solutions in English, till recently Russian and International companies trying to implement software faced a range of problems:
- lack of information about 1C products in English;
- lack of English interface for the software products;
- lack of accurate translation of terminology;
- lack of a system integrator, able to conduct an implementation of an 1C product in English.
First, International companies were worried about the problem of assessment of 1C solutions' quality and functionality.
The experts of these companies just couldn't evaluate the products and make any conclusions regarding the advisability of their implementation. It was also impossible for English-speaking employees to work with 1C products.
There also was a considerable problem, caused by the fact, that the translations into English were made by Russian specialists, not acquainted with western terminology, and partners of "1C" company didn't have enough English-speaking specialists and lacked experience in implementing such projects.
