L10n - Localisation

Related courses

The localisation industry is constantly changing, moving and using the latest technologies to provide cheaper, faster and better services. New file formats, platforms and associated procedures can let you out of the loop in a few months. It is vital for professionals on this field to stay updated. Professional development courses ensure you remain on edge and are able to implement the best processes.

On the past few years, I have chosen specific professional courses on topics that I find interesting such as localisation engineering, web development, QA and testing and CAT tools. Find more details about these courses below.
