Breaking the Mold: From Large and Rigid to Agile, Specialized, and Secure
Our industry’s established localization model is rigid. The client hands a job to an MLV, that sends it to several RLVs, that pass it to a few SLVs, that outsource it to freelancers (and all the way back). This results in certain entities being unnecessarily involved in project dispersal, an inability to cope with small or high-velocity projects, and an opaque process. Thankfully, several companies are looking outside the old model and collaborating to create temporary and “virtual” teams specialized for the job at hand. However, corporations are not eager to send proprietary information to ‘some cloud’ and security is a concern. Clients want to see this model has a secure environment and this requires two things: 1) A legal framework and 2) technology to protect the contents. This KnowledgeFest will feature discussions on the various aspects of this challenge with a goal of determining how companies can transition to an agile and secure localization model.
