Localizing means to finding the exact location of a person, place, or thing - either on a map or in reality. For instance, "The earthquake was localized in a certain province." In medical parlance, "to localize" is used to describe locating the actual cause, source, or location of a problem such as an injury, infection, or other source of pathology. For example, "The nerve damage included localized pain in the arm."
