How can you, either as an individual or as a manager representing a company, help launch the next generation of localizers? What are the barriers to entry for localization graduates? What are the difficulties new localizers face when entering the industry, and how can you support them? How can hiring international students help diversify your team and what are the specific requirements as well as immigration supports in place? Join a panel of graduates of the Translation and Localization Management Program at the Middlebury Institute of International Students who will discuss these and various other topics, and who are ready to answer any of your questions!
