Industry conference Localization World officially kicks off its second virtual version today. Not to be daunted by coronavirus lockdowns, LocWorldWide43 follows up on the success of last July’s remote event and will run through 3:30 pm Pacific time tomorrow, January 28th. Attendees can access networking and educational sessions by using Jujama, a US-based conference hosting platform.
Speakers include representatives from Adobe, Dotsub, Netflix, RWS Moravia, SAP, SDL, Welocalize, Wordbee, XTM International and others — including familiar localization industry faces like Adam Asnes, Jessica Rathke, Alison Toon, Chris Wendt and John Yunker.
An online exhibit hall includes 25 organizations — including MultiLingual, which until 2020 was Localization World’s sister company. Former publisher Donna Parrish continues to run the conference together with cofounder Ulrich Henes of the Localization Institute. Other exhibitors include CSA Research, Easyling, Systran, Translators without Borders and Nimdzi — MultiLingual‘s parent company.
Localization World has also issued its call for presentation proposals for the next two conferences: LocWorldWide44 and LocWorldWide45, to be held online in June and October this year. The theme for both events will be “Pushing Boundaries.” Proposals for June’s event are due by February 12th. Those wishing to speak in October must submit proposals by March 12th.
