Find out how Turner Broadcasting Systems Europe successfully localizes creative content across digital channels (web, mobile and social media). Learn about the challenges Turner encountered when localization activities expanded to deal with new languages and how the implementation of the Wordbee solution has streamlined the process and eliminated previous issues. In the latter part of the session, Anita Sempels will briefly show how the system is used within Turner Digital Development Group (including the customizations that were developed) and suggest other business applications.
