Silicon Valley L10N PM Certification 2019

Nov 4, 2019 - Nov 6, 2019. Menlo Park, CA, United States.

The online training is followed by a classroom workshop.  The workshop will be held on November 4-5 at the Quadrus Center in Menlo Park, CA, United States. Please visit the website for information on location and directions.  The Quadrus is not a hotel, so you will need to make arrangements if you need one.

The workshop will include a review of the online material, small group exercises and presentations from localization professionals. The workshop concludes with the certification exam. It is essential that participants bring a laptop to the workshop.

The online study portion of the certification course will be available beginning August 26.


Attendees will have 3-5 years of experience in localization on either the vendor or buyer side. Please contact us if you have questions about the prerequisites. You will have up to 10 weeks to complete the online self- study prior to the workshop.
