Seattle, Washington & Rouen, France (GALA / Inttranews): The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) has expanded its services and extended its news sourcing partnership by offering its members a free annual subscription to Inttranews, the leading news site for the language industry.
GALA is a fully representative, non-profit, international industry association that promotes language services and technology. The association gives members a common forum to discuss issues, create innovative solutions, promote the industry, and present a joint and more powerful voice within the industry and to the outside community.
The wide range of services provided to its 300 corporate members have now been further enhanced with daily updates from Inttranews, covering all the issues and events of interest or concern to linguists worldwide.
"We are pleased to offer yet another GALA membership benefit by providing free annual subscriptions to Inttranews," said Laura Brandon, GALA Association Development Manager. "Inttranews has proven to be a valuable resource in the industry, and we encourage our members to take advantage of this opportunity."
For Inttranews, the partnership with GALA underlines the strategic value of the wire service. Malcolm Duff, Chief Editor of Inttranews, comments, "The translation industry has to react faster than ever before as communication efforts become truly global, emerging markets bring "minority" languages to the fore, and technology develops exponentially in an increasingly wide range of fields affecting language. We provide the information for industry leaders to keep up with all of those changes and anticipate market moves."
