Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) to host sessions to help founders and entrepreneurs manage their localization businesses
Seattle, WA, USA -- The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA), an international non-profit association that encourages local communication as an indispensable component to a global strategy, will host several sessions for localization business owners, founders and entrepreneurs attending the upcoming Localization World conference in Berlin.
Building on the success of eight previous conferences, Localization World comes to Berlin from 19-21 June. With a theme of Local Language First, the conference will include developers, practitioners, and corporate and institutional users who will discuss the world of translation and localization. With three concurrent tracks, the program contains information and discussion about linguistic assets with case studies from a wide range of applications.
The GALA-hosted sessions will offer valuable information for running a localization business. They include two sessions on the pre-conference day, 19 June: "Mergers and Acquisitions Uncovered: From Seller to Buyer in 12 Months - an Insider's Guide to M&A," and "Practical Standards: Shaping Uniform Language Requirements for Business." Another GALA hosted session, entitled, "The Joys and Pains of Growing" will take place on 21 June and will be moderated by GALA Board Member, Matthias Caesar.
GALA, a long-term supporter of Localization World, also will host a group exhibit at the conference. The exhibit will feature seven GALA member companies: ACP Traductera, CET, Clay Tablet Technologies, GAMAX, Human Science Co. Ltd., iDisc Information Technologies, S.L., and ORCO S.A.
Carrying along a tradition from past Localization World conferences, GALA also will hold its member meeting during the conference. Representatives from many of GALA's more than 240 member companies will attend the meeting, which will take place on 19 June. Topics will include an update on current activities, membership and finances as well as interaction and input from members on future activities.
