Professional women working in the localization industry in the Northeast now have a place to go to find mentorship, networking, and professional development.
New York, NY November 30, 2015
Women in Localization, the leading professional organization for women in the localization industry, is pleased to announce the launch of the US-based North-East Chapter (WL NE).
The North-East region, encompassing Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York and New Jersey, has a significant number of global companies, which, in turn, require localization and translation services.
“Women in Localization is expanding not only globally but also within the United States,” states Eva Klaudinyova, a co-founder of Women in Localization and Executive Board member in charge of chapter management. “The North-East chapter is a new addition to the Women in Localization headquarters based in Silicon Valley and the Pacific-Northwest chapter. The latest NE chapter joins our existing chapters in the US, Europe and Asia.”
Ora Solomon, the Manager of the Women in Localization North-East Chapter, goes on to state: “We are very excited to be launching this new chapter. Our primary hubs are Boston and NY, both of which suffer from a lack of networking opportunities in the localization industry. Having attended a few WL events in the Bay Area myself, I have seen firsthand the value of such a forum.”
The inaugural event of the Women in Localization North-East Chapter will be held in Boston on December 3, 2015. This networking event, planned in conjunction with WL Assistant Chapter Managers Rachel Ferris and Sara Vlahovic, will give all members a chance to meet and find out more about the plans for the Chapter. All new members are welcome.
To attend, please RSVP to Rachel Ferris
