The Localization Institute was founded in the fall of 1996 to help a young and rapidly evolving industry gain access to quality training and learning opportunities. My own experiences, first as an International Sales and Marketing Manager, then as President of the US office of a British localization company, confirmed to me that there was almost nowhere to go to learn about localization and about how companies could compete more effectively in international markets.
The Institute offers public events and private consulting engagements that help companies reduce the cost and time required to deliver localized products and services. Our facilitators have years of direct personal involvement in the specializations they represent, have a passion for sharing their expertise, and are skilled at doing so.
What started with a single event almost a decade ago has evolved into an organization that conducts many events each year covering different aspects of the industry. Localization Institute events have an unrivalled reputation for exceeding participants’ expectations.
