Event Speakers

Luz Maria Pineda Ramirez
Motorola Solutions Inc.

Luz Maria Pineda Ramirez is a localization professional currently working as Senior Technical Project Manager – Localization for Avigilon, a Motorola Solutions company. For the best part of a decade now Ms Pineda has worked in localization in a variety of software applications such as websites desktop, web-based and mobile apps. Her introduction to localization was working as localization tester of video games. This experience enabled her to understand the importance and need for ‘localization quality’ across all languages and allowed her to appreciate her own native language under a different light. She spent over 9 years in different software testing roles only to go back to her real passion, localization. The following quote in many ways reflects her view of the need for quality localization input—'Languages may seem to separate us, divide us, after all languages shape the way we perceive our world, but it is the need to communicate, to connect that bring us back together, that make us human'.
