What we're about
Who we are
SF Globalization brings together people in and around San Francisco who are interested in the globalization of content of any type and format (e.g. software, mobile apps, web content and online services, social media, marketing, video) intended for international audiences.
Globalization includes everything that’s needed to get products ready for success worldwide: investigating the variations in product requirements, designing user experiences that are tailored to local expectations, internationalizing the software to handle the differences and enable worldwide communication, creating localized configurations, and translating the user interface and content.
Our events are local and in person. We do not record or livestream the presentations.
Our typical meeting schedule (Pacific Time):
6:30-7:00 pm Networking and snacks
7:00-8:30 pm Presentation and discussion
8:30-9:00 pm Social time, extended Q&A
