About this program

International audiences have always gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to user experiences. While companies have already learned the immense value great UX can have, only a fraction of the effort is invested in ensuring that localized products offer the same level of experience to international users.

The reason for this is knowledge - specifically, a wide knowledge gap separating localization teams and UX teams, making it harder for both to collaborate and work together towards this mutual goal of optimizing localized UX.

This training will give international product and localization teams an in-depth look into the considerations of international content design. Together, we will learn how great UX copy is made, how it can be adapted to different locales in language and culture, and how we can support the creation of equally great content in multiple languages.

“Ticked every box for me”

"It was very well structured, covered a lot of ground and also just had loads of real-world insights. Even though I'm a seasoned localiser myself, I learnt a lot of new things.

Michal is a very engaging trainer and her passion for UX writing and UX localisation shines through.”

Anna Ward, Head of Localization at Unite

  • Understand the challenges and help facilitate product localization processes for improved UX in multiple languages
     

  • Feel comfortable discussing copy choices with product teams
     

  • Know how to analyze and evaluate user experience content in any language

Who is this for?

This course is designed to train localization professionals in any level, both buyer-side and vendor-side, who are interested in expanding their knowledge of UX and fostering a better relationship with design, UX and product teams. The knowledge in these lessons will help localization managers, project managers, linguists, and more understand design and UX choices and facilitate better localization processes for themselves and their teams.
