Abstract

The need to develop intercultural user interfaces is more urgent than ever due to global competition. By using appropriate IUID methods, processes and tools, cultural differences in user interface design for other cultures can and must be considered. IUID research has developed rapidly in recent years, but this is also necessary in order to close research gaps and provide the developer of intercultural user interfaces with action-relevant but scientifically sound design recommendations. Explanation models for culture-dependent HMI design are the basis for this. In the following, relevant results and statements on the IUID are summarized and presented. Subsequently, the most important conclusions are drawn and relevant recommendations and calls for action are given. The chapter concludes with an outlook on the future development of intercultural user interfaces.
