If you regularly follow the TCLoc blog, then you probably love languages, as we do. You might like to find people that share your passion, with whom you can discuss localization, and from whom you can learn many new localization-related tips. If you like the sound of this, then going to conferences is the perfect place to start. For this reason, we gathered information a host of major global localization and technical communication events. We hope that this information will help you connect with colleagues like-minded individuals in the localization industry.

Some practical advice: I you are looking for a job/internship in the localization industry, take care to consult the websites of the companies you see at the localization events you attend. Companies often publish job offers during, and after, such events.

P.S.

  • We know it’s already March but there is still plenty of time to go to some awesome conferences.
