Localization should be part of a tech stack from the beginning of any software development process and should go beyond just internationalization. Today, developers are using repositories and files to get their content translated, but we can bypass this complex process by making their applications talk directly to the cloud. In doing so, we can improve how the industry has been solving this problem for decades. In this session we will discuss why having a cloud-based foundation that makes internationalization and localization uniform across all programming frameworks is the natural next step in the evolution of localization.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn how to enable a seamless localization process connecting development platforms directly to the cloud, allowing developers to focus on building their products while copy and translations are fully managed by localizers and continuously delivered to end-users over the air.
