GALA, the Globalization and Localization Association, announced today its GALA Ambassador Program, and I’m honored to have been chosen to be among the first four Ambassadors of the association.
Last year I gave the keynote speech at the GALA Conference in Miami, and had the chance to share with the audience my views on how the role of localization will evolve in view of an increasingly powerful technology assisting localization firms, and enterprises in their efforts.
In the announcement GALA said today:
Two of the main roles of an Ambassador are to utilize their prominent industry position and their connections to promote GALA and to help with the job of representing GALA at the many events where it is felt the membership can benefit from our being there. Their findings from these events will be reported back to the membership; the key being to share new findings and know-how.
For me it will be a privilege to listen to market needs, and to promote the value of an association like GALA to enterprises worldwide.
