Localization APIs: Integrate Unintegratable
Marina’s path in localization began back in 2011. Starting with a position of localization project manager, she has progressed through several roles at Allcorrect Group which led to a deep understanding of processes.
Handling over 1000 localization tasks a month forced Marina to look for automation opportunities, hence becoming one of the optimization evangelists in the company.
Marina is also focused on culturally challenged concepts in video games and corporate ethea. Her current interests include developing visionary leadership and optimization insights in game localization industry.
Video game localization industry has grown dramatically during recent years. Now we know a lot about the importance of context, internationalization and culturalization. But the actual workflow hasn’t changed much: we keep on wasting time on file-pushing.

The speech is likely to be useful for a wide range of video game professionals, from indie-developers to AAA-publishers, willing to save time and effort while managing localization.
