Past Chapter Events

WL Eastern Canada chapter kickoff event

Women in Localization has officially arrived in Canada! WLEC kicked off their first event, sponsored by Shopify, on June 5, 2019.

The chapter’s leadership team introduced themselves and their goals for the new Canadian chapter, followed by a Q&A session with the audience. This led to lively discussion around the current state of translation programs in Canada, the need to better prepare graduates for the workforce, and opportunities to provide more education around translation and localization technology.

You can reach chapter co-founder Kathrin Bussmann’s full write-up of the event and watch the video below.

Thank you to Shopify for sponsoring the event and Rodrigo Pizarro for contributing as videographer.
