Free Podcast Series on Content GlobalizationFebruary 20, 2008 at 10:56 am | Posted in Content Management, Globalization, Podcasting | 2 Comments
I’m happy to say that after a whole lot of interviewing, writing, and document reviews in the fall/winter of 2007 my report ECM for Translation and Localization: Raising IT’s Globalization Fluency was finally published at the end of January. I’d like to thank all the clients and vendors that gave me their time to tell me about what they are seeing from their vantage point on the globalization market and, along with my teammates, gave me their comments during peer review.
The report is only available to clients of the Collaboration and Content Strategies service, but I’ve also done a series of podcasts and accompanying blog entries that summarize the report. The podcasts/blog is available for free. I’ve attached the details and links below. Please let me know what you think by commenting here or in the blog companion entries. Enjoy!
