** Please note that Daylight Savings Time ends on October 29, 2023 in Europe but not in the US until November 5. The Localization Institute schedules classes in US Eastern time zone, so students in Europe will have their session time on October 31 start one hour earlier. Upon registration, students will receive calendar invites for each session to help ensure there is no confusion.
The way localization is integrated into a company is critical to the company’s long term success because most enterprises will generate a large share of their revenue from global markets. A pivotal factor in achieving global success, localization often sneaks in through the back door and never gets the respect it deserves. It ends up being seen as a mere operational unit, a cost center if you will, and is not given the chance to contribute as the strategic asset it really is.
From setting up localization from scratch to repositioning it from a cost center to strategic partner is a complex journey, a journey Karen Combe knows well. For 15 of the 20 years she worked in localization at PTC, Karen had the opportunity to affect company policy and strategy as a Vice President.
The Localization Institute is pleased to offer an instructor-led online Master Class on Localization Management with Karen Combe. In five sessions, Karen will share best practices in Localization Management on the buyer’s side.
Please note this class is limited to 20 students maximum so be sure to register quickly!
