Collaborative and Agile: Software Localization

Collaborating between localization, development and localization vendors is at a higher premium than ever before, due to the frequency of sprints and releases. There’s a growing demand for localization to move fast to keep up the development cadence, and this is where technologies can leverage your localization speed, workload, and impact.

At LocWorld38 (Seattle, 2018), a Lingoport customer, Yuka Kurihara of Pitney Bowes, presented together with Olivier Libouban, Lingoport’s VP of Product Development.

This session had a packed room, with standing room only. Yuka did an outstanding job of presenting real-life situations and solutions.

You can watch the whole presentation (shot with a single mobile phone, so pardon the quality) or a two-minute feature video that was included as a use case highlight.

Session Description:

Software developers use communication tools such as Slack to collaborate around a project. It’s an important trend in software organizations and collaborative tools are replacing email for many types of group conversations. Localization members and development staff can benefit by using the same environments to take quick decisions as a team around specific aspects of development and translation. Furthermore, localization bots can be integrated into the conversations to provide action and information just like any team member and help streamline translation processes from the development world to the translation world.
