Localization aims to make the world smaller – to bring humans closer together regardless of country of origin or mother tongue in order to inspire, advance, and improve.  To cultivate communication. It is, therefore, counterintuitive to operate with the expectation that resources are best sought in one geographic area to reach an audience spread globally. To localize for the world, language companies need to leverage talent from around the world.  So why are many companies resistant to recruit employees to work virtually?  During this webinar, we will explore the advantages, risks and some best practices to operating with a remote workforce that is efficient, productive, and profitable.
