One of my old roommates worked for a startup in the tiny town where I live. He was an excellent roommate because he was at work all the time. His breakneck schedule involved staying up most of the night fixing bugs, so he was rarely awake when I was getting ready in the morning.
It appears that working for a startup can be difficult, and as nice as that might be for the roommates, it’s not always as relaxing for the employees and founders. So why not make it easier by researching how to level up ahead of time? Going global can involve many things you may not have considered before… that’s the whole reason this magazine exists.
This issue on localization for startups focuses on basics as well as the more techy side of things, offering a broad view of how to localize. Clientside localizers from Tinder, Teradata and Lyft weigh in, and we have third-party perspectives from CSA and Localization Flow Technologies. Writers from language service providers large and small also offer their take. Our Client Talk column even focuses on a Danish startup to see if localization is on their radar.
Because big or small, if you’re starting a company that may one day go global — or is in the process now — you can learn a lot from the experts.
