Who Are Localization Managers and Why Your Business Needs One

Teams face many questions when it comes to localization. Once you decide to scale your product internationally, you have a lot of work to do. Besides deciding on the target market, languages, and budget, you’ll need to find software, prepare your code, upload the files, find translators, ensure they won’t crush the code, have all the resources to provide high-quality translations, and more.

In most cases, coordinating all of these efforts is the job of a dedicated person with management skills, understanding how to automate content updates and set up a continuous translation process.

Today, we’ll talk about the place of localization in UX and translation in design. In the past, localization may have been considered separate from the entire web design process. Maybe even an afterthought. But in the current, more vastly globalized web development scene, that mindset can lead companies dangerously closer to irrelevance.

UX Localization first, not last — this is one of my team’s common mantras at Tomedes, a localization services provider, believes in and applies in our customer projects. We’re adapting the client’s content from one region to another. We’ll tell you more about our experience of putting localization first and how Crowdin helps us with this approach.
