We have witnessed the surprising reactions of various cultures and age groups on these icons, and have learned new ideas for moving forward. Keywords: graphics, icons, symbols, internationalization, localization, cultural interpretation, visual language, visual instruction, wordless instruction 24 INTRODUCTION Imagine the image of two circles, one next to the other. What are they? Set in this square frame, it may be the face of some dice, or a cutout of a square button. Is the frame a part of the symbol or object in question, or is it merely a frame that surrounds or crops the image?

The problem of the original design was the association with the wrong meanings and the confusion with the similar icon representing “acceptable” (see Table 2), so the redesign could not solve the design problem. Further research is necessary. For conforming to the meanings of “wait/hold,” two alternative designs were significantly better than the original. They were the icon with an hourglass symbol (see Table 4) and the icon with a circle composed of twelve center-emitted lines. Both icons can be found in computer systems.

Both had the same blue background color, white light bulb symbol, and red prohibitive OK sign. Another more abstract icon representing “retry” did not suffered from this problem and met the acceptable matching rate (see Table 2). A redesign for better distinguishability seems necessary. Both icons with a clock symbol only and with a clock symbol with seconds to represent “wait/hold” (see Table 3) failed to meet the acceptable match rate. ” A redesign for better meaningfulness seems necessary.
