Many companies have localization requirements beyond the capacity of their internal teams, which often consist of just a single person. These lonely localizers are tasked with enormous responsibilities and have little to no budget for additional headcount or for keeping up with best-practices and industry trends. What they may not realize is that their partner LSPs can offer so much, like technical expertise, terminology, strategy, and a lot of experience gained from all the work they do with a multitude of clients. In this webinar, presented by two of the largest localization vendors in the industry, you will learn how to tap into your LSP’s resource pool and technologies and extend your localization team. Allison McDougall from Lionbridge and Liesl Leary from SDL, both Women in Localization Board Members, discuss secrets of working with LSPs (from both services and technology sides) that will ensure that you get ahead with your localization program.
Liesl Leary is a Product Marketing Director, heading up marketing for SDL Americas Global Solutions Group. She is an active corporate philanthropist, raising money for causes that promote sustainable economic development. She lives in Boulder, CO with her 2 children, loves to ski, connect with others, and promote workplace diversity.
Allison McDougall began her career in localization on the client side at HSBC, and moved to the supplier side 16 years ago. As a Vice President at Lionbridge, she is responsible for a global team of business development and account management professionals dedicated to helping some of the world’s leading brands with their customer experience management strategy. Allison is based in Boulder, Colorado and is excited to help bring further visibility to Women in Localization through public relations efforts.
