Microsoft’s GlobalART group currently localizes 55 million words into 100+ languages annually across its current portfolio of packaging and digital content. By completely reinventing their localization process in conjunction with their strategic supplier, Microsoft GlobalART is on target to cut their translation costs and turnaround times in half. But how? During this session the project team will share their story around the thought process and implementation that went into this, as well as the innovative centralized approach to tools and automation of Adobe InDesign workflows that led to their success.
