Abstract

The massive use of internet provides information access all over the world. It represents a potential benefit for everyone, but also brings disadvantages when it comes to deliver the information in an effective manner. Intercultural aspects have to be explicitly considered when developing web applications. This paper proposes a set of usability heuristics that includes cultural aspects. Preliminary validation proves its potential when evaluating web sites.
