Wednesday, November 6, 2019, 1:30pm – 5:00pm
Held in: Glen Ellen
Presenters:

In this workshop participants work through a collection of samples typical of localization projects and create a project that is ready for handoff to a service provider. After discussion of theory and explaining criteria, participants will be asked to validate the localization-readiness of the content. In this workshop, we will focus on:

  • Categorization of source content into content types
  • Evaluating writing quality of source content
  • Terminology harvesting, categorization, validation and preparation
  • Evaluating content from the viewpoint of cultural sensitivity
  • Preparing a Localization Bill of Materials
  • Choosing the proper workflow by content type

Newcomers to the localization profession will gain knowledge and skills needed to prepare and organize projects efficiently for optimum results.
