World San Francisco:
& Topics Localization World San Francisco
Today localization is not just part of international product marketing, localization is embedded in many functions ranging from e-business to customer support, from enterprise content management to supply chain management. Localization has also become a vital function in many different vertical industries, from IT - where it started to automotive, medical, financial and games.
Localization World in San Francisco will highlight the challenges of Asian localization in a number of exciting sessions. There will be a special focus on the Medical Device Manufacturing industry. And we will feature sessions that address the new challenges of customer support localization, looking at innovative solutions such as cross-lingual knowledge bases and automated real-time translation.
Localization World is the place to deepen and broaden your knowledge of localization, not just by attending the sessions but also by meeting the people. You can find former and future conference delegates in the Localization World Network. Using the Localization World Taxonomy, you can set up your interest profile and quickly connect with people in your interest groups.
The organizers of Localization World have developed a 'localization taxonomy' to help active participants as well as first-time 'visitors' find their way around the world of localization. Issues are classified in three broad topics: Functions, Industries & Geographies. This classification is used both in the Localization World Network where it will help you identify fellow travelers and network with others who share your interests as well as in the Localization World program where each session is "tracked" according to the taxonomy.
Localization Functions include - with the particular focus in San Francisco:
Color Codes for Conference Tracks
The tracks in the program schedule are color-coded to indicate which sessions pertain to which topics enabling delegates to plan their personal schedules more easily.

Conference delegates can also attend workshops on the pre-conference day (Monday, November 15) - for special training to develop new areas of expertise or community meetings that promote collaboration and cross-fertilization of ideas among professional peers.
