As localization or globalization becomes a vital and undeniable task for any company looking to move outside a mere domestic market, the LPM certification is an excellent short course for those just getting into the field or those who have been doing it for several or more years. While I myself tend to think about localization from a videogame angle, the course brought professionals from other industries together, broke down real challenge or work at hand, and showed all attendees clever and valuable techniques to quantify and qualify a variety of different jobs.
