The upcoming 2012 Internationalization Conference March 14-15 in Santa Clara, CA will feature two tracks: internationalization and localization. Attendees are welcome to float from track to track to sessions they deem most pertinent to their interests. Specific to the joint i18n & L10n tracks, presentations will include:


Integrating Internationalization with Localization

  • Presented by
    • Kent Grave of Cisco
    • Michael Kuperstein of Intel
    • Adam Asnes of Lingoport
  • Date/Time: Thursday, March 15, 10:00-10:55am
  • About: Most of the time, we’re internationalizing toward a localized release. Yet, we often talk of one without the other and there are many grey tasks in between. In this session we’ll give examples from Cisco’s globalization efforts with TelePresence, Intel’s work supporting globalization, and Lingoport’s experience integrating internationalization services with localization activities for faster time to market.

Demo Derby

  • Date/Time: Thursday, March 15th, 11:00-12:00pm
  • About: Fast and furious, demo derby participants will be limited to ten minutes to demonstrate their technologies. We’ve chosen several software applications that provide productivity power to i18n and L10n. Expect quick action and not much PowerPoint. Time will provide for Q&A for each presenter. This is a great way to catch up on what’s new in software for your profession.

Panel Discussion: Internationalization and Localization Process – How to Make your Organization Global Aware

  • Presented by
    • Jean-François Vanreusel of Adobe
    • Kent Grave of Cisco
    • Tex Texin of Rearden Commerce
    • Michael Kuperstein of Intel
    • Salvatore Giammarresi of Yahoo!
  • Date/Time: Thursday, March 15, 4:30-5:30pm
  • About: Though we may work at companies with different degrees of global focus, it’s still important to build and emphasize global thinking among developers, managers, sales and marketing. There remains resistence, uncertain requirements, and uncoordinated directives that can cause expensive release delays (or cancelations) and hold back winning new customers. In this session, the presenters will share what’s worked (and hasn’t) in championing and delivering global products.
