The corona virus pandemic is weighing on us all now – personally and professionally. The LocWorld team is well and we hope you are, also.
Regarding LocWorld42 in Berlin, we are in negotiations with our conference venue, the InterContinental Berlin, and are forced to wait for further developments in Germany before we can make a definitive announcement. Meanwhile, we are investigating opportunities for a virtual and safely-distant way to get together, network and learn. We promise to let you know more as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding.

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.
