Text in graphics and icons

Graphics and icons often include text. Only text that will not be translated (such as a company logo) should be included on graphics and icons that are going to be used internationally because it is very expensive to translate text within a graphic. Whenever possible, avoid text in graphics and icons completely. ToolTips are a good alternative that are less costly to translate.
