We’ve added another 53 new and updated international localization/translation style guides to the Microsoft Language Portal.

International style guides provide general Microsoft guidelines for style, tone, orthography and other language topics. They will help you localize, translate and author content when developing applications that run under Microsoft platforms such as Windows or Exchange or integrate with products like Office, Dynamics, Visual Studio, SQL Server etc. International style guides tell you how to “speak to” the user when addressing them in your application, web content or Help topic. The style guides are in the PDF format.

We now provide these guides for 97 languages in total!

The list includes a few new languages that we are offering for the first time:
