Online Course in Localisation

What is localisation?

Localisation is about the translation and cultural adaptation of software, documentation and games, and requires translators with highly specialised skills. The localisation industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, and there is a lot of work in the market for translators who possess the right skills.

First launched in January 2009, this online course in Localisation is an interactive e-learning course designed and developed by a practising software localiser with many years' experience in the localisation industry.


The course lasts 11 weeks and is normally offered 3 times a year.
