Rosalind Smith - Localize Africa
Host: Rebecca Petras

In this session we will cover information about African countries; their past, present and future plans for infrastructure; the status of education in the past and now; the language groups and numbers; the fact that these languages were mainly spoken by agrarian or fishing-based peoples, and the issues faced in the translation of modern technological terms. These are all factors that need to be taken into account by anyone entering these markets.
