Introduction to Website Localization

Learn the ins and outs of website localization!

As the demand for website localization grows, there is a need for qualified translators who are up to the task. But many translators feel that they need more than just linguistic skills and have many questions: “Do I need to learn how to code? Do I need special software to localize websites?”

You don’t need special powers or magic rings to translate and localize websites. All you need is a mixture of cultural expertise, technical skills, and language mastery to deliver exceptional results and help your clients’ websites shine in other languages.

The speaker will guide you through processes carried out in a typical website localization project to analyze potential traps. You will also find out how to solve some of the most common website translation issues to find your way out of the localization maze.
