Building and running a localization program can be interesting, dynamic and rewarding—but it can be daunting, too. But it’s especially challenging when you are a team of one. In this episode of Globally Speaking, hosts Michael Stevens and Renato Beninatto invited Oleksandr Pysaryuk, the (only) Localization Manager at Achievers, to speak about his experience.
Together, they discuss:
- How a linguist can become a localization project manager
- How a team of one can build and run a localization program
- Why a software company should go ‘mobile first’
- Why silence can be a great indicator of success
- How to onboard translators to enable success and how to keep employees engaged in their work
Tune in here to learn how a single localization manager built a localization program and what he considers to be the elements of success.
