The Changing Dynamic of Quality in the Localization Industry

Monday, 21 March, 2016 - 14:00

Language quality models are evolving as the industry recognizes diversity of content and audiences, and no longer demands "perfect" quality for everything localized. The focus has shifted to determining what is "good enough" quality and defining how it impacts our tools, processes, and supplier relationships. This KnowledgeFest will feature discussions on topics such as implementing tiered quality into localization models, how to build acceptance for less-than-perfect translation quality, and how to alter localization planning based on audience and content types.
