Many localization managers are responsible for deciding what languages to add to their localization program. They know that they must present evidence so that managers will agree to invest. The question becomes: how do you find and present this data?
In this episode of Globally Speaking, Michael and Renato invited Joel Sahleen, Globalization Architect at Domo, to speak with them about the importance of data and customer-centricity in justifying the costs of localization.
- How to look at data to prove the value of localization
- Why customers really call all the shots
- The three approaches to localization
- The “wall of shame” and how it can help resolve localization issues
