Globalization in the twenty-first century is no longer just about translation and localization. Effective globalization requires an awareness of technologies and how they are adapted around the world, and the ability to differentiate products from competition that can come from anywhere from Austria to Zimbabwe. Even as new technologies provide emerging opportunities for companies looking to go global, they also disrupt our ability to conduct business in accustomed channels. Technologies such as search and on-line auctions require new directions in globalization efforts.

Content Management Systems have yet to be fully integrated into localization processes, and emerging XML-based technologies that promise to dramatically reduce documentation costs will require their own localization processes. On-demand translation will become increasingly important in a world where content can be accessed anywhere by anyone.

A 3-day Business Automation, Language Technologies, Tools, and Services Exhibition is a featured part of the Summit.
