The Leading Industry Events:

THE LOCALIZATION INSTITUTE’s initial goal was to build our business by offering vendor-neutral event and conference experiences. We felt that by providing a setting in which industry leaders could come together and share their experiences, network, and celebrate successes; that the industry would organically grow by leaps and bounds.

We believe the continued success of these event offerings supports that initial goal and has expanded to include encouraging the development of industry initiatives and growing future industry leaders.



LocWorld is the leading conference for international business, translation, localization and global website management. Attendees are the people responsible for communicating across the boundaries of language and culture in the global marketplace. With a specific emphasis on global business the conference provides an opportunity for the exchange of high-value information in the language and translation services and technologies market.

A Brief History:
In 2003, The Localization Institute‘s founder – Ulrich Henes – contacted the publisher of MultiLingual Magazine – Donna Parrish – and suggested that they hold an event for the localization industry. Together they created an event where people could network and learn, with old business solidified and new business created. It has thrived and grown under The Localization Institute and Multilingual Computing‘s continued organization and has become the marketplace of the language industry.

Global Location Hosting:
The conference is held three times annually across the globe, with host cities rotating each year. The Pac-Asia event kicks off the calendar held in Late-February/Early March. The Europe event is held in early-to-mid June. The North America event closes out the year in late October-to-early November.

Localization Round Tables

Localization Round Tables

Our Localization Round Tables bring together localization practitioners from leading companies around the world to share perceptions on new developments and to exchange information about effective localization. Extended sessions allow in-depth discussions, with a focus on the establishment of best practices.

This meeting offers collaboration and networking at its best. No vendors, sponsors, or exhibits distract from focusing on the business at hand: improving the art and science of localization.

Many consider the Localization Round Tables, with a typical attendance of 25-35 professionals, the most productive conference they attend each year.
