For most of the industrial age, wealth, knowledge, and innovation flowed from the developed centers of the world to the edges. But now a new generation of global youth, armed with digital technology and the rapidly-extending reach of networks and mobile devices, is shaking things up. This Young World uprising has political, economic and social dimensions, but one thing is certain: it’s changing the dynamics of the global information economy and creating new sources of demand – and supply – for content. Great ideas now come from everywhere, in every language. Where does the translation and localization industry fit in this fast-changing environment? How do these global shifts influence the emergence of new business models like crowdsourcing, cloud-based services and machine-translation? What can we all learn from the next generation of global entrepreneurs?

Join author and consultant Rob Salkowitz (Young World Rising; Generation Blend) for a wide-ranging look at the successes and challenges emerging from the next generation of innovators, and how entrepreneurial businesses are creating new markets for translation and localization services.
