In the past decade, Latin America has experienced dramatic changes with ripples that can be felt in the region’s economy, politics, culture, and beyond. Successful Latin American businesses and executives follow the latest technology trends, implement up-to-date industrial processes and are often times ahead in the use of social media. Opportunities abound and language service providers have been following the trend. Local stakeholders, global associations and events like think! have planted the seeds, and the localization industry already thinks Latin America. But we can go further: Working together and learning from each other we can develop our own companies and the industry as a whole. This session was presented at think! Latin America 2014 in Lima, Peru on 10 October 2014. The event was organized by GALA, Ccaps, and SpeakLatam.
