London, UK - May 14th, 2013. More than 600 global business executives from over 30 countries are expected to attend this summer’s Localization World 2013 conference in London, June 12-14. The conference, which features eight tracks related to “Know-How for Global Success,” has a special focus on localization in a shifting global economy.
Localization World brings together delegates who are engaged in the business of adapting products, services and communications to an international language or culture so as to appear native to that particular region. Speakers at the conference include representatives from Adobe Systems Inc., Autodesk Inc., Caterpillar, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Zynga and many others including well-known analyst groups. The conference, produced by MultiLingual Computing, Inc. and The Localization Institute, will be held at the Novotel London West.
David Smith, Economics Editor of The Sunday Times, will deliver the keynote address. Smith is also an assistant editor, policy adviser and chief leader writer. He has won numerous awards, including the Harold Wincott award for Senior Financial Journalist of the Year and is a regular contributor to the CBI's Business Voice.
The preconference day will include full-day and half-day workshops, as well as round tables on Life Sciences, Game Localization and Localization Sales and Marketing. “Our preconference events have proven so popular,” says Ulrich Henes, the conference co-organizer and president of The Localization Institute, “that we’ve expanded our offerings to include an introduction to content modeling and a session on localization for start-ups. We also have in-depth sessions on more technical aspects.”
