About GALA Conferences

The Language of Business. The Business of Language.

The Globalization and Localization Association is the largest global non-profit association within the language industry, providing resources, education and research for companies working with translation services, language technology and content localization. GALA member companies are vendors and buyers of language services and technologies. They deploy sophisticated multilingual strategies and proven tools to take content and products to markets around the world.

GALA Language of Business conferences bring together the industry’s thought-leaders, innovators and influencers. In GALA’s open, collaborative environment, they drive innovation through open-minded discussions and debates about the opportunities and challenges facing our industry. Growth is fostered for individuals and for the industry as a whole.

GALA conferences welcome all members of the translation and localization community, including providers of language services, managers of global content, and language technology developers. The
Language of Business conferences provide an opportunity for high-value networking and candid peer-to-peer learning.
