LocWorld is the leading conference for international business, translation, localization and global website management. Attendees are the people responsible for communicating across the boundaries of language and culture in the global marketplace. With a specific emphasis on global business the conference provides an opportunity for the exchange of high-value information in the language and translation services and technologies market.

Who should attend:

The conference is especially valuable for companies that want to venture into new international markets. People new to localization will benefit from the Global Business Best Practices and the Localization Core Competencies tracks as well as the informative exhibition area. Experienced professionals attend to learn about new tools, methods and business practices in the areas of localization and internationalization. Networking and mutual problem discussion opportunities will abound at the social gatherings, meals and break periods. Exhibitors will be present to provide information about their products and services to all levels of attendees.

Why attend:

LocWorld is organized to give plenty of opportunities to gather with fellow professionals, whether it is in the exhibit area, between sessions or at a social gathering.

Pricing.

The conference is reasonably priced with discounts for early registration, options for one-day attendance and affordable accommodations.

Preconference Offerings.

In addition to the two-day main conference, there is an optional preconference day of round table discussions, hands-on workshops and focused sessions.

Last year was the first time I attended and my head was swimming with all the information. This year was even better. There are so many good sessions it's really hard to choose which ones to sit in on. Luckily I sat in on some great sessions this year.
