Localization World Bonn: June 29 – July 1, 2004, Bonn, Germany

The Localization World Bonn conference was an exciting gathering of professionals. Over 330 registrants signed up from an impressive list of client and vendor companies coming from all over the world.

A new Web-based Networking Service assists participants in meeting just the right people and finding out what they know. At Localization World, both translation novices and experienced localizers will maximize the value they take home from a conference. Read more about the Localization World Networking Service and make sure to register in time.

Who should attend:

Conference sessions are geared towards professionals seeking to learn about new tools, methods and business practices in the areas of localization and internationalization. Networking and mutual problem discussion opportunities will abound at the social gatherings, meals and break periods. Exhibitors will be present to provide information about their products and services to all levels of attendees.

Why attend:

  • Content. The Localization World program followed the precedent set in Seattle, in 2003, offering a variety of high-caliber presentations and panel discussions strong on content and short on sales pitches. Organized by a strong advisory board, the program promises to be a worthwhile assortment of sessions with valuable takeaways for the attendees.

  • Networking. Localization World is scheduled to give plenty of opportunities to gather with fellow professionals, whether it be at the exhibit area, between sessions, or at a social gathering.

  • Pricing. The conference is reasonably priced, with discounts for early registration, options for one-day attendance, and reasonably priced accommodations.

  • Location. The conference is held at the Beethovenhalle on the Rhein River in downtown Bonn.
