The Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) will host its biennial Monterey Forum on April 1-2, 2017. The forum theme is The Future of Localization Training: Keeping Pace with an Evolving Industry. The localization industry often moves at a rapid pace, imitating the software development industry, and requiring quick adaptation to changing technologies and markets. Monterey Forum 2017 will address how localization professionals and educators can adjust curriculum to reflect the latest trends in the industry. One of the major challenges we face is how to train people new to the industry, while simultaneously challenging those with industry experience themselves to expand their skill sets. The Call for Papers is open until December 31, 2016. Registration will be open this winter.
