What people have said about previous conferences:

"I was amazed with the professionalism, the logistics and the choice of every little detail. If this industry wants to learn what "cost effectiveness" really means, they should attend at least one Localization World." — Fabiano Cid, Managing Director, Ccaps Translation and Localization

"The Localization World conference in San Francisco was both fun and informative. In just two days the core challenges and changes of localization were discussed at length." — Joe Didamo, VP Global Business Development, Moravia Worldwide

"Localization World has become the reference event for the translation and localization industry. The unique structure of the event guarantees value for every attendee, and the careful selection of speakers balances innovation with education. A must for the experienced professional and the newcomer to the industry." — Renato Beninatto, Partner, Common Sense Advisory
