Eva Klaudinyova has been working in the localization industry since 2000, leading localization teams and implementing new strategies in some of the most well-known companies in Silicon Valley. She has a linguistic background with experience in translation, review and QA; project and program management experience on the supplier side (Medialocate); as well as experience managing localization teams and programs of all sizes on the buyer side. Apart from the overall globalization strategy, she has implemented a quality management strategy in a then-starting localization program at VeriSign, in a bigger and more mature Globalization Operations program at VMware, and she also built a world-class quality and supplier management program for multiple localization departments at Apple. She understands quality management on every level from different points of view. She offers multiple viewpoints and perspectives not just to buyers of localization services looking to implement or improve their quality management strategy and processes, but also to providers who would like to custom-build a quality management offering for their clients.
