WLGC: Empowering African Women in the L10N Industry

July 20 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Get insights on cultural nuances with African Women in the L10N Industry

Africa is known for its vibrant colors and diversity - this aspect is true even in the case of the translation and localization industry.

With the NBU coming from Africa and because of Internet access, Africa is opening up to business, thus creating opportunities in the language industry.

W.L. GC brings you an “Information packed” session which demystifies Africa and focuses on the L10N industry, women leaders, their challenges and how culture plays a crucial role in their success. Join us as we chat with three strong and driven women who will take us through a journey of Africa, with a representation from West Africa, North Africa and East Africa.

The conversation will stem from the the notions presented in the book “Culture Map” by Erin Myers, in a way to understand intercultural differences in business, specifically related to these 3 African regions.
