IMUG: How Acquisitions Affect I18N and L10N Teams: A View from the Client Side

I thought I would give a plug to my newly er, acquired Oracle colleague, Carrie Fischer, who will be speaking at the August 16th International Macintosh Users Group meeting in Cupertino about “How Acquisitions Affect I18N and L10N Teams: A View from the Client Side”.

Given the amount of consolidation we’re seeing on the client side, I’m surprised that this topic isn’t covered in the localization forums (conferences and publications) more often. Instead, we’ve already had too much written about consolidation on the vendor side.


I did touch upon the issue in my “Taking Care of Global Business” in Multilingual Technology and Computing (see the “Due Diligence: Translatability and Localizability Checklist” ), but I haven’t seen much else written. Carrie’s presentation is very welcome and should be well worth attending.
