Attracting and Developing Talent: A LocWorld Initiative

Home/Attracting and Developing Talent: A LocWorld Initiative
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.

Session Participants

There is an emerging consensus in the localization industry that our industry will confront a severe talent shortage in the coming years unless there is a focused effort to proactively create and manage the supply of professionally trained staff. To effect change, industry leaders, academics, trainers and certification experts need to meet to assess the challenges and to develop a sustainable strategy that will address job categories, education and incentives. In this session we will continue the discussions started in 2014. We invite people interested in collaborating to get in touch with us to join the effort.

Advisory Board Members: Anne-Marie Colliander Lind ( Consulting AB), Ulrich Henes (Localization World, Ltd.), David James (Adaptive Globalization), Karl Kelly (University of Limerick), Rain Lau (Google), Andrew Lawless (Rockant Localization Training & Consulting), Teresa Marshall (, Iris Orriss (Facebook), André Pellet (ManpowerGroup), Reinhard Schäler (University of Limerick)
