Breaking the Mold: From Large and Rigid to Agile, Specialized, and Secure

Tuesday, 22 March, 2016 - 14:00

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.

After studying mathematics and physics, Jörgen founded a translation company and bought his first MT system in 1990. Over the next decade, he held several executive-level positions with a focus on ERP, CRM, and technology. After three more years balancing multiple roles at the same time, he decided it was time to implement his own ideas regarding customer-based services again, and founded Eule Lokalisierung in 2005. Jörgen is always eager to find new ways of doing business in our industry.
