How Agile Localization can be a competitive business advantage

Vasco Duarte

Workshop: 90 minutes


Was the release of your project ever delayed when localization problems were found too late? Or worst, delayed subsequent products because of this delay? Or the fact that UI specifications quickly get out of date, leaving us with very poor quality testing by localization testing vendors. In most projects localization is still done in “waterfall” mode. Localization teams are typically involved at a very late stage of the development cycle.

We have lived through many of these problems, and we believe that Localization and Agile software development were born to be together. If you want to know how localization can be done better and faster come and see us.
