Localization is the function of adapting products, services and communications to an international language or culture so as to appear native to that particular region.

“Localization has always been key to international business,” says Ulrich Henes, president of The Localization Institute and one of the organizers of Localization World. “In today’s world, we are becoming increasingly connected through mobile devices. People are relying on tablets and cell phones for entertainment, day-to-day functions and, sometimes, life-saving support. In some emerging markets, traditional models are being completely bypassed for MMS. At Localization World Paris attendees will have the opportunity to learn about localizing content for mobile devices, best practices, and how to get started. The program also covers entering new markets, managing multiple language content, translation tools and launching websites and products for multiple language markets. This conference represents an opportunity to hear from experts around the world and at the same time review the best products and services in the exhibit hall.”
