Women in Localization will be hosting two roundtable discussions this month—one in Boston on June 14th and one in New York City on June 21st. Localization is the professional practice of adapting products and services to specific markets. This not only includes translating content into local languages, but also making modifications based on consumer habits, cultural customs, and regional modes of organizing and quantifying information (ex. time and date formats, currency and measurement units).
In accordance with WiL’s mission, the talks will be centered around empowering women in the field, addressing topics like increasing visibility within corporate structures, handling gender discrimination, mentoring women in the workplace, and much more.
