Monday, 9 November, 2009
Seattle, Washington, USA (9 November 2009) – The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) has completely updated its website to offer more resources for members and the industry as a whole. The site, www.gala-global.org, was also designed to be more usable, with information for GALA members and translation buyers easy to find on the homepage.
One of the major new features is the Knowledge Center (renamed the Resource Center in 2011). In addition to a wealth of articles, case studies, and survey data, the Knowledge Center includes the association’s quarterly GALAxy newsletter, its LocalizationCAREERS.net job board and its updated Language Technology & Services Directory. The searchable directory offers users easy access to information on vendors around the world.
Another new feature is the Localization Overview, which lives within the Knowledge Center. Developed by experts in the industry, the overview is a first stop for anyone who wants more information on taking products and services global. It covers everything from definitions of localization and internationalization to localization technologies to working with localization vendors.
“We have made the website a portal to be used by our members and their customers for greater knowledge,” said Laura Brandon, GALA Association Manager. “Our goal is to make it the premier resource in the language and localization industry.”
