Meeting Description:

The Action week for Global Information Sharing will bring together hundreds of volunteer translators, localisation specialists and NGOs from all over the world to address the plague of global information poverty. It will bring hope to people currently deprived of vital information and energize a world community of translators and localisers to make a difference. If you are a professional translator, a localiser, a student, or a volunteer - then this is your event. The Action week for Global Information Sharing is a joint initiative by Translators without Borders and The Rosetta Foundation aimed at bringing information to people regardless of their material wealth, with the help of volunteers with language and localisation skills.

The 14th Annual Internationalisation and Localisation Conference organised by the Localisation Research Centre (LRC) & supported by the Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL) will take place on 24 and 25 September. This year's conference 'Localisation in The Cloud' aims to look at the application of cloud based computing and software as a service concepts to the software localisation industry.
