This is an official Canadian edition of the Localization Unconference: https://sites.google.com/site/localizationunconference/
Spend the day discussing your localization-related topics, learning from your colleagues and networking. As always, no selling, no PowerPoint, just lively discussions of your topics...and free lunch! (The event is free, but please register via tickets so we have an accurate count for lunch.)
The unconference format is designed to facilitate a spontaneous, free-flowing exchange of ideas. 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. Participants are expected to engage in the conversation to provide ideas, commentary, and counterpoint.
Localization Unconference Toronto is organized by:
Ariane Duddey, Senior Bilingual Technical Writer, Broadridge
Richard Sikes, Senior Linguistic Consultant, Content Rules
Oleksandr Pysaryuk, Localization Manager, Achievers
