MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, USA, September 14, 2020. Women in Localization (W.L.), the leading professional organization for women in the localization industry, is delighted to announce the launch of a new Chapter in Romania. This will be W.L.’s twenty-fifth (25th) chapter.
Leading the Women in Localization Romania (WLRO) chapter is Chapter Manager Cezara Pantelimon from High Tech Passport, Ltd. She is joined by Anca Marica from Ubisoft, Alexandra Enea from UiPath and Oana Geantă from Bitdefender.
“In Romania, the localization industry is fairly new and it’s growing,” said Chapter Manager Cezara Pantelimon. “We strongly believe in the importance of building a community to support each other professionally, sharing new ideas and debating the best approaches in localization.”
The chapter’s inaugural event will be held virtually on Thursday, October 22, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. EEST. The event will focus on presenting the mission and values of Women in Localization and introducing the chapter’s leadership team. Polls and online chat will be used to facilitate networking and gather input from the local community on future events.
“The highlight of the event will emphasize the advantages of creating a localization community, a domain so little explored in our area,” said Cezara Pantelimon.
Those interested in attending the inaugural event are encouraged to sign up on Eventbrite and register to become a member of Women in Localization. The Romania Chapter (#WLRO) can be also found on LinkedIn and Facebook.
“We are so excited to launch the Romanian chapter,” said Loy Searle, President Women in Localization. “We continue to be humbled and amazed by our volunteers who lead our growth and build community around the world! Congratulations!”
