GALA 2018 – March 13-16, Boston
The Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) is a global, non-profit trade association for the language industry. GALA's annual Language of Business conferences are advanced educational and networking events where translation and localization industry leaders collectively discuss best practices, common challenges, emerging trends, and industry technologies.
Today's global business takes place in a heavily digitalized world. The results of digitalization are all around us: The Internet of things, big data, machine to machine communication, block chain, AI, to name a few. But what is the effect of all these technologies, this "Digital Transformation", on society and business? How are we, in the localization space, challenged by this? How can we use this to our advantage?
