What are the strengths and weaknesses of different models for an internal localization department? Where should it report, and who should hold the budget? Should it be a cost center or a profit center, treated like marketing or like an internal supplier? How much should you outsource? With lessons learned from leading an internal group through various incarnations and evolutionary stages, we will reflect on the advantages and challenges of different models during this session.
