GALA Weekly Webinar Series
**Proposals for Q1 2020 are being accepted until 29 November.**
The GALA weekly webinar series gives translation and localization professionals a platform to share lessons learned and best practices from across the industry. Webinar topics are wide-ranging—from software localization to language technologies, from transcreation to globalization strategies—and are often directed at a specific audience segment such as language service providers (LSPs) or globalization teams in multinational organizations. Session recordings are available online after the webinar is over. Webinars typically take place on Thursdays at 11:00 AM EST.

Who is the Audience?
Our viewers come from a variety of professional and regional backgrounds, but are typically professionals who have worked in the translation and localization industry for several years, either on the buyer or the provider side. They are often specialized in specific industry verticals, like life sciences, game localization, or legal translation, or have expertise in specific aspects of the end-to-end localization process, such as source and target terminology management, quality assurance methods, localization tools or the application of machine translation. For the most part, they know the basics and expect advanced content. They want peer-to-peer, in-depth information describing processes, best practices, case studies, and research findings that they can leverage in their professional careers.
