Localization World Seattle: October 25 - 27, 2005
Translation and Technology

Building on the success of four previous conferences, Localization World returns to Seattle, Washington for the fall, 2005 conference: October 25 - 27, 2005. Over 420 registrants have signed up from an impressive list of client and vendor companies coming from all over the world.

Like all Localization World conferences, the program will cover a wide range of issues in the world of translation and localization, but will also follow the theme of the conference in focusing on a set of key topics. Localization World Seattle 2005, with its theme of "Translation and Technology," will explore how technology is used throughout the localization process. This would include the actual translation process as well as project management, content management, quality assurance, authoring and other topics.

A Tuesday night opening reception and a Wednesday night dinner help to create enjoyable opportunities for networking and fun.

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. Here is valuable information for your management that shows why you should attend the conference.

Reservations for exhibit space are now being taken. Request information about exhibiting.

Why attend:
  • Content.

  • 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 affordable accommodations.
  • Location. The conference is held at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center in downtown Seattle, Washington USA.

What people have said about previous conferences:

"LW Bonn exceeded all my expectations; the profile of the attendance was perfect as 80% seemed to be decision-makers; the exhibition was a tremendous financial success for us; the sessions were so leading-edge, and the networking and bonhomie so fluid – and that’s not to mention the social events! A tribute to all whose names lie behind this." — Joseph P. Deignan, consultant

"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
