Home/Localizing Africa
The corona virus pandemic is weighing on us all now – personally and professionally. The LocWorld team is well and we hope you are, also.
Regarding LocWorld42 in Berlin, we are in negotiations with our conference venue, the InterContinental Berlin, and are forced to wait for further developments in Germany before we can make a definitive announcement. Meanwhile, we are investigating opportunities for a virtual and safely-distant way to get together, network and learn. We promise to let you know more as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding.

Rosalind Smith - Localize Africa (Pty) Ltd.
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.
