Localization World London 2013

Again this year we couldn't miss the European edition of the translation and localization industry conference - The Localization World 2013. It was already our fifth consecutive conference. If you're interested why we attend it so regularly, check out several answers mentioned on our blog.

This time, the industry community gathered in London in a middle of June. The highlights of the conference related to the shifting global economy, the content explosion on the Internet, automation, machine translation and as usual - defining what quality means, or should we rather say: the mission impossible of defining translation quality.

Change seems to be the only constant for our industry these days (well, of course for many more industries as well). We guess, it's highly interesting to check out two of the many changes discussed at the conference:

- The change of gravity for the global economy

- The change of a way we see and sell translation and localization services

Conference cultural standards change as well, in the best sense. This is how the keynote presented by David Smith of The Sunday Times began. The cultural program was performed by AlphaCRC, which seems to be well prepared for working in other industry as well - just listen.

 

Pictures from the conference are traditionally available on our blog. We hope to see you next year at another Localization World conference - this time in Dublin.
