How do you scale up a product localization process in a growing start-up with global ambitions? Box’s small globalization team wanted to do more — improve quality while reducing time to market, and automation was key. Agile by nature, Box wanted a simple, flexible and modular localization platform to integrate with their development environment and to scale up fast, as well as play nicely with scrum-compatible external translation workbenches. So they’re building it and they want to share it. Come and play.

Takeaways: The attendees will learn how Box took a start-up-sized globalization team and delivered faster time-to-market and a great user experience. They will also learn about the agile open source localization platform Box is building and how automation allows localization project managers to focus on what really matters — building awesome products for a global audience.
