If your company is serious about venturing into international markets, “translation” and “localization” will need to become part of your everyday vocabulary, if they aren’t already. You’ll find that a sound translation strategy will be as vital to your sustained growth overseas as marketing, product development, legal and operational considerations.
One great way to get up to speed on how translation works,and what it can do for your business, is to attend Localization World. The translation industry’s most popular conference, “Loc. World,” (as it’s referred to by insiders) is a gathering of the brightest minds from the translation, international business and tech sectors. Exhibitors include top-tier translation agencies from around the world, thought leaders in the global business arena, innovators of translation technology and other high-value service providers.
Whether you’re new to localization or a veteran at adapting your products to other languages and cultures, Localization World is your ticket to accessing the latest trends, business practices, tips and technologies that will equip you to get the most out of translation.
It’s not too late to send a representative from your company to Localization World Vancouver, October 29 – 31. In fact, if you’re keeping a close eye on international markets with expansion in mind, this is amust-attend event for you, regardless of where you’re at in the process. You’ll get a crash course in all things translation, if you’re new to the industry, or build on the knowledge and experience you’ve already acquired by attending cutting-edge seminars and interacting with leading localization experts.
This year’s theme is disruptive innovation. The preconference lineup includes round tables, workshops and focused sessions ontechnology, game localization, startups going global and much more. You can tailor your conference program to your company’s specific needs, attending seminars on a broad range of key topics including selecting a LSP (language service provider), managing a localization project, content strategy, the latest in translation technology, global websites and best practices for obtaining high-caliber translation output.
Acclaro will be exhibiting at booth 115 in the main expohall. Our team will be available to talk to you about what makes our translation solutions unique in the industry. We hope to see you there!
