Expert Panel to Discuss How to Bridge the Gap between Software Development and Localization in Online Session

Complimentary One-Hour Online Panel Features Localization, Internationalization, Software Development, and Content Development Experts from Zynga, IBM, HP, Content Rules, GlobalPragmatica, and Lingoport

BOULDER, CO – July 12, 2011 – Lingoport, a leading provider of software internationalization consulting services and i18n tools, announced today that it will host a live online panel discussion on Wednesday, August 3, 2011, titled “Bridging the Gap Between Software Development and Localization.”

Developing a software application for global markets requires a concerted effort of many stakeholders within a company. Localization, often treated as an afterthought, can have a huge impact on a company’s bottom-line, thus requiring developers, localization managers, business managers, and many other stakeholders to work hand in hand.

Adam Asnes, President & CEO at Lingoport, notes, “We often see a lack of understanding between different groups within a company. The disconnect between these teams usually results in project delays and the loss of revenue from foreign markets.” He continues: “We’ve assembled a group of industry experts who will share many of their own best practices and also discuss strategies that contribute to bridging the gap between software development and localization.”

The 60-minute online panel discussion will be facilitated by industry veteran Erin Vang, owner of GlobalPragmatica, and feature the following industry thought leaders:

  • Danica Brinton, Senior Director of International at Zynga
  • Val Swisher, Founder & CEO of Content Rules
  • Dale Schultz, Globalization Test Architect at IBM
  • Edwin Hoogerbeets, Senior Internationalization Engineer at HP
  • Adam Asnes, CEO & President of Lingoport
