Invoice2go and Achievers are in entirely different industries and markets, providing global products using a one-person localization team. Can one person really build (or rebuild) a localization function? Who should you partner with and influence internally? What tools and processes should you adopt? When do you decide to outsource? How do you balance planning versus taking matters into your own hands? In this session we will discuss these questions in an interactive format, sharing trials and tribulations of continuous delivery, of adopting and abandoning tools, educating internal customers, and of utilizing people skills that localization managers can’t operate without.

Takeaways: Attendees will discover a multifaceted localization manager toolkit that places the use of internal collaboration, processes and technology in a new light to champion localization.
