GEXP 2017

LocWorld Barcelona

A unique cross between UX and localization.

Gain design skills, improve your work with UX teams -- and delve into the new world of Global Experience.

The Globalization Experience Forum (GEXP) brings together the world of globalization services and the user experience of content into one single information-packed session on the next generation of localization.



9.00am Let There Be Continuous Delivery – Building and Streamlining Localization Processes
Speaker: Cristina Farelo, eDreams ODIGEO

During the session we will analyze the basics to build and establish localization processes in most every company. Then the focus will be on ways and means to improve efficiency by streamlining these processes. We will also describe how a localization workflow not only can be tailored to suit the needs of new fast-paced development methodologies, such as Agile, but also can contribute to the optimization of other stakeholders’ practices. The ultimate goal of this optimization is to achieve continuous delivery without jeopardizing the final quality of the results. As a wrap-up we will describe the main current and future challenges when establishing a localization process and the obstacles that may be encountered along the way, plus possible ways to successfully overcome them. The main aim of the session is not to provide a magic formula to implement a fully effective localization process, but to provide the attendees with some guidance, based on the speaker’s experience, to establish proper localization processes in any company for a successful market expansion.
