Even the most logical of business leaders love a good story. LocLife, the online event series exploring the human side of localization, was developed with that in mind. The first session takes place on Wednesday, July 22nd at 12:15 pm EST, and we invite one and all to join the conversation!
Hosted by Acclaro, LocLife brings together industry insiders and the business community at large to share stories about personal and professional challenges, successes, as well as trends and the future of localization. From professional development to diversity to the impact of AI on the industry, conversations are sure to engage localization novices and experts alike.
“As humans, we have an easy time digesting, following and remembering narratives,” said Annemieke Scott from Acclaro. “LocLife gives those within and outside of the localization community a chance to start a conversation about the real-world impact of our stories.”
The series is a reminder that we’re more than vendors and buyers, or products and services. We’re people with experiences, partnerships and lessons to share. Each session focuses on a different theme in that vein, but it all ties back to our shared mission: to unite people through language.
LocLife kicks off the series on July 22nd at 12:15 p.m. EST, with Millennials. Figuring life out together. Moderated by Acclaro’s global brand champion Javi Diaz, this inaugural event features a panel of leading millennials in the localization industry, including Swati Narwal – global category purchaser at IKEA, Vojtech Schubert – localization manager at Bohemia Interactive, Jeff Beatty – senior head of localization at Mozilla and William Spalding – localization program manager formerly at WeWork.
Together, we’ll explore how two economic crises, career fears, debt, a pandemic and social anxieties impact our lives.
