Localization World is the leading conference for international business, translation, localization and global website management. Attendees are the people responsible for communicating across the boundaries of language and culture in the global marketplace. With a specific emphasis on global business the conference provides an opportunity for the exchange of high-value information in the language and translation services and technologies market.

Who should attend:

The conference is especially valuable for companies that want to venture into new international markets. People new to localization will benefit from the Global Business Best Practices and the Localization Core Competencies tracks as well as the informative exhibition area. Experienced professionals attend to learn about new tools, methods and business practices in the areas of localization and internationalization. Networking and mutual problem discussion opportunities will abound at the social gatherings, meals and break periods. Exhibitors will be present to provide information about their products and services to all levels of attendees.

Why attend:

Content. The Localization World program follows the precedent set in previous conferences, offering a variety of high-caliber presentations and panel discussions strong on content and short on sales pitches. Organized by a committee of industry experts, the program is a worthwhile assortment of sessions with valuable takeaways for the attendees.

Networking. Localization World is organized to give plenty of opportunities to gather with fellow professionals, whether it is in the exhibit area, between sessions or at a social gathering.

Pricing. The conference is reasonably priced with discounts for early registration, options for one-day attendance and affordable accommodations.

Preconference Offerings. In addition to the two-day main conference, there is an optional preconference day of round table discussions, hands-on workshops and focused sessions.

Localization World is organized solely to distribute relevant information and facilitate discussions within and about the localization industry.

Localization World is organized by partners Donna Parrish of Multilingual Computing and Ulrich Henes of the Localization Institute. They have created Localization World as a bi-annual event in Europe and North America to provide one place for localization and translation professionals to meet to discuss problems, solutions, technology and advancements within the industry. The Localization World conferences welcome experienced localization experts as well as localization professionals who are finding their way through today's newly-defined global markets.

One of the reasons that people attend Localization World is for the networking opportunities. Besides the exhibit hall with areas for impromptu meetings, ample time set aside between sessions and at lunches, the conference offers two special occasions to allow attendees to relax and get to know each other while also getting a sampling of the local food and culture.
