Localization of enterprise software for sim-ship has always been a daunting task: don't break the build, get translations done in real-time with English changes, integrate test and bug fixing cycles to finish at the magic RTM date for all languages. Processes perfected with traditional approaches of well-controlled in-house tools and workflows met their match with an explosion of globally distributed, agile projects. This talk will focus on our adventures, failures, and successes when moving enterprise software localization to the cloud.
