By reusing tools, processes, and in some cases people, software localization can achieve incredible efficiencies in the quality/time/cost challenge trifecta faced by many businesses. From UX design to automated testing frameworks, scalability and efficiencies are greatly improved by source and version control software, test templates and error tracking, integrating software localization into stakeholders’ teams, tools and processes.

Takeaways: Attendees will gain new perspectives and take away new ideas on how to approach these common industry challenges: high costs associated with localization testing, the decision to invest (or not) in new tools, keeping up with agile development cycles, creating effective and influential working relationships with development teams, and ensuring adherence to internationalization and localization principles across multiple teams in multiple locations.
