Second Annual Conference Attracts Translation and Localization Professionals Worldwide


Seattle, Washington, USA (8 March 2010) – Early registration for GALA 2010, the Globalization and Localization Association’s second Language of Business conference ends Friday 12 March. The conference, which is 10-12 May at the Intercontinental Praha in Prague, will bring developers of content together with translation and localization sellers to discuss and debate the future of global content delivery. 


Presenters at GALA 2010: The language of business. The business of language.” include localization and translation buyers from such leaders as Hewlett Packard, VMware and Walt Disney Pictures and Television, researchers from Forrester Research and Common Sense Advisory, and a number of leaders from language service and technology providers. The program for the conference is available at the GALA 2010 website.


The GALA 2010 theme, The Global Community: Capturing Customers Worldwide, reflects the work shared by GALA members and their customers in communicating global content locally. In addition to the program of speakers, the conference will include ever-popular speed networking with translation buyers and sellers. 


“The conference registrations for GALA 2010 have been strong, which speaks to the quality of the program and the reputation GALA has developed for putting on highly professional events focused on relevant content and world-class networking,” said Hans Fenstermacher, GALA board chair. Early registration allows registrants to receive a 100 Euro discount.


Feedback from GALA’s initial Language of Business conference in 2009 was overwhelmingly positive. Xavier Marchand, a director of production at one of our member companies, commented that, “I had more existing clients and more contacts at GALA 2009 than at any of the shows I have been to before.” 


Jean-Luc Mazet of Hewlett Packard stated, "For its first international conference, GALA put together an outstanding program and the caliber of the presentations was worth taking time out of our busy schedules to attend."


Silvia Avary-Silveiro of VeriSign remarked, “The 2009 GALA conference in Cancun was the best conference I went to last year. It was three days of sharing ideas and work experience with bright people in the localization industry and excellent presentations: All that and the added bonus of being in a wonderful location!” GALA 2010 will continue to push the envelope and introduce some new networking concepts.
