Envisioning the Perfect Enterprise Globalization Team – From Strategy to ROI

Anna Schlegel, NetApp
Held at 11:00 EDT (17:00 CEST) on October 8, 2015

Enterprises in the Silicon Valley and other hot “incubator areas” compete fiercely for positioning, revenue, and being first to market. But penetrating global markets doesn’t happen overnight. The machinery needed to launch and sustain global growth includes executive commitment, site investment, strong HR policies, legal compliance, partnerships, join ventures, and more. The one team that has a part in all of this is the globalization team. In this webinar, we’ll indulge our fantasies and describe what it would look like to have the ideal globalization team. It is comprised of the right professionals, it is highly functional, it is aligned with executives, and the team is full of morale and enthusiasm. It also turns out that it is not all about translation, or even strategy. Rather, it is about balance, alignment, and efficiency.

Extending your Localization Team with LSP Resources

Liesl Leary, SDL and Allison McDougal, Lionbridge

11:00 EDT (17:00 CEST) 29 October 2015

Many companies have localization requirements beyond the capacity of their internal team, which often times consists 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 2 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, will reveal secrets of working with LSPs (from both services and technology sides) that will ensure that you get ahead with your localization program.
