GALA 2010 Focuses on the Future of Global Content Delivery

10-12 May conference brings translation and localization leaders, researchers and buyers together

Thursday, 25 February, 2010


Seattle, Washington, USA (25 February 2010) – GALA 2010, the Globalization and Localization Association’s second Language of Business conference, 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.” (10 – 12 May 2010 at the Intercontinental Praha in Prague) includes localization and translation buyers from such leaders as Hewlett Packard and VMware, 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.


Early registration discounts for GALA 2010 are available through 12 March. 


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. 


“In developing the programming for GALA 2010, we searched for lively presenters with deep knowledge in their areas of expertise who could interact directly with our attendees,” said Kim Harris, a GALA board member and chair of the programming committee. “Strong presenters with provocative topics, coupled with GALA’s very popular speed networking sessions, all in a beautiful setting that encourages collaboration—that is what GALA’s conferences are all about.” 


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.” 


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.
