How to Join GALA

Grow with GALA

GALA’s worldwide community of members provides you and your team with access to a vast network of experts, globalization opportunities, and chances to participate in localization development at an industry scale.

For your organization to join GALA, you will need to know the annual revenue (language service companies) or annual localization department budget (clients) and the company's billing address.

  1. Create a user account and organization profile. If your organization already already has a profile, you will connect to it automatically.


  1. Log in and select any of the “join / renew membership” buttons to open the user portal.
  2. Add membership to the cart and complete the checkout process. Select the revenue/budget range to populate the corresponding dues. Next, review the billing information and agree to the GALA Code of Conduct.  
  3. Pay online with a credit card or select "Bill Me" to create a downloadable invoice. Click the blue "Invoice #" button to open the invoice and "Download PDF" (not "print") to save a copy.
  4. Membership starts on the date dues are received and is active for one year.
  5. Once membership is active, invite your colleagues to create their user accounts, schedule an orientation, and learn how to maximize your membership ROI!

Join or Renew


GALA membership is open to any organization with a stake in globalization, localization, translation, interpreting, or related technologies. Members must agree to the GALA Code of Conduct when first joining and each year as part of the renewal. As a trade association, GALA does not offer individual memberships.

There is no limit to the number of users - the more the merrier! Each user should create their own account (sharing a login can cause user experience issues). We encourage the entire organization to explore GALA’s resources on globalization opportunities and localization development best practices. The more you and your team engages with GALA, the greater the ROI.

Universities are eligible for the free GALA Academic Membership.
