Hiring managers always benefit from having the maximum number of qualified applicants for localization positions. Unfortunately, most employers never see as many qualified candidates as they would like. What are localization education programs doing to better educate and train tomorrow’s localization talent? What should these programs do to take education and training to the next level? Learn about the latest efforts to provide practical localization education at schools offering a variety of programs, ranging from undergraduate minors to full graduate degrees.
