This presentation focuses on maintaining effective content for English users while also exploring evolving translation strategies. You will also learn about various translation strategies and tools, including the pros and cons of each.
If you're interested in meeting people who - like us - are involved in languages and localization - here is the chance.
What you get:
- A chance to rub elbows with some of the leading minds in localization
- An open, friendly, actively engaging platform for you to share your innovative ideas, ask your thought-provoking questions, learn from your peers, and push the needle!
- A way for you to learn from and give back to your awesome and equally innovative peers!
- Something that is FREE. Yes! Gratis! You pay nothing! Yay!
What you won’t get:
- The same kind of boring, uninspired and largely rehashed Power Point presentations that you have learned to fall asleep to year after year
- Obvious, over-the-top, I-can-smell-you-coming-from-a-mile-away vendor pitches that you have dreaded from attending conferences year after year
- A pre-determined and largely pre-digested set of “What, this again?” topics that are about as inspiring as watching paint dry
- Something that is NOT FREE!

LEARN! DISCUSS! NETWORK!
Come enjoy the Localization unconference Toronto on February 25, 2016! This is the 3rd official Canadian edition of the Localization unconference: Spend a full day with your industry colleagues discussing your localization related topics, learning from your peers, and networking. The event (including coffee and lunch) is free of charge.
The Unconference Format
The unconference format is designed to facilitate a spontaneous, free-flowing exchange of ideas in a non-sales, non-threatening environment.
In the opening session, unconference participants suggest and promote discussion topics of their choice. The participants then vote to determine which topics will actually be addressed during the ensuing three to four sessions.
The sessions themselves are moderated to ensure fluidity, but are not structured, per se. Prepared presentations are not given, but participants are expected to engage in the conversation to put forth concepts, commentary, and counterpoint.

Here at BeatBabel, we're not the type to sit around and wait for news to come to us.

We can't wait to hear what they have to say, see what they have to offer and, most importantly, to boast about our tech-awareness in front of some of our technological dinosaur friends!
If you see someone from our team around, stop and say hi!
