ABSTRACT
The author discusses the criticalness of adjusting illustrations or icons which display any part of the human forms particularly hand gestures. Localization companies should study beforehand the impact of these gestures in the country where they will be displayed. For example, the thumbs up sign which we understand to mean "okay" can be considered a sexual insult in other countries, like Greece. He also reflects on the ethnic and gender issues surrounding body gestures.
