"So, what are the new roles to explore? I believe data analyst and evangelizer are the top two options. As a localizer plus data analyst, we can make better data-driven decisions for localization strategies; and as a localizer plus evangelizer, we can make our voice heard more clearly and help our clients and stakeholders to better understand the importance and value of localization. As a student, I truly hope to learn data analysis skills and localization evangelization skills so as to be a better localizer."
