Are you curious about the latest innovation in localization technology? Join us for a webinar on headless TMS, where we will explore this cutting-edge concept and its potential applications for localization buyers, language service providers, and localization technology vendors.

In this webinar, Jose Palomares (Coupa) will be joined by Kirti Vashee (Translated), Johan Sporre (IKEA), and István Lengyel (BeLazy) to break down the complex concept of headless TMS and explain it in easy-to-understand terms. We will cover its origins, what it looks like, and most importantly, how it can address the challenges facing the localization industry today.

We'll also explore the process of building a headless TMS, including the necessary expertise, time, and resources needed to make it a reality. Who can realistically build one nowadays? What kind and size of localization team (LSP or buyer) would benefit the most from it? What technologies can be included in this model?

Looking to the future, we will ponder whether the headless TMS could become an off-the-shelf technology, widely available and easy to adopt, as well as its role to play in the age of AI, where new practical applications emerge every day. Will this model become obsolete quickly, or is it the best framework to future-proof ourselves?

Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in localization technology!
