Considering a New Approach to Continuous i18n & L10n

We are working with our hosts to make this an online event. The location information on this event web page will change to a Google Meet link, visible after you RSVP. Admission will be free. :: Our industry is ripe for a new way to deliver software internationalization and localization Localization runs behind development, as a bolt on process. Even current continuous localization practices are built on old linguist-centric models of translation tools and handling. By nature, localization and its QA are an additional lag. Engaging input from in-country reviewers adds even more delay and overhead into the process. In this presentation, we will show you what we’re working on to change all this. We’re looking to make both internationalization and localization immediate, right in the developer workspace, with in application review and updating that’s quick, easy and doesn’t require knowledge of translation tools. We will show a connected system from Slack and Teams, to the IDE, to the repo, any commit or pull request, testing and deployment. We’ll show internationalization and localization, plus review on a live application. This won’t be running on the PowerPoint OS. We think this is the future for our industry - an exciting change that makes localization a natural and scalable deliverable of product development. We’ll also welcome your input as the session will involve technology that hasn’t been released yet to the public. Presenters: Adam Asnes, CEO, Lingoport Olivier Libouban, VP of Product Development :: Networking 6:30 - 7 PM, and after the talk as time allows For directions and parking info, see the map link on this page No webcast.

Annual IMUG International Potluck & Holiday Bash

Adobe HQ - East Tower, Layers Café

Admission to this event is FREE for members and nonmembers. :: This one is on the second Thursday, and starts at 6 PM. IMUG maps and directions: http://www.imug.org/adobe The IMUG holiday bash always features unusual food and good conversation, including discussions of language technology, business, travel, life across cultures, and more. Our friends on the Adobe globalization team have once again graciously offered to host our event, this time at Layers Café in the same East Tower as most of our IMUG talks. Adobe will offer drinks, and IMUG will bring pizza. You needn't bring a thing, but we always look forward to the fantastic variety of ethnic dishes the less culinarily-challenged among us can muster up for this annual food-fest. That always takes things to a higher level. You needn't prepare or buy more than 3 to 4 portions worth, and in fact you needn't bring anything at all. Come as you are, with or without a potluck contribution, but do come prepared to eat! Adobe Systems will host this event at Layers Café in the Adobe East Tower in downtown San Jose. Many thanks to Xiang Zhao, Janice Campbell, and the rest of the globalization team at Adobe for their support! For maps, directions, and more, see http://www.imug.org/adobe Admission is free for this event! But while we have your attention: IMUG membership is only $20/year, $15/renewal, or $100 for lifetime membership. Click here to join or renew via PayPal: http://www.imug.org/imug-membership-and-event-fees.htm Cash, checks, and credit cards also accepted at our events. Please RSVP via Meetup by 4:30 PM two days before the event, so that our hosts can pre-print a badge and get you past Security faster. After that time it's still OK to RSVP, to help us prepare the space for the right number of people. (If alcohol is served at this event, by your RSVP you agree to drink responsibly, and to choose a designated driver or arrange alternate transportation if necessary.)
