Venue: ZOOM (registration link below)

Are you interested in putting your language skills to use in the field of translation and interpretation? Does the intersection of technology and translation interest you? If so, join Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) alumni on November 10 at 6:00 p.m. (EST) to hear how they gained a competitive edge in the $50 billion language services industry as Localization professionals. Localization is the process of adapting the content related to an idea, service, or product to the language and culture of a specific market or region. Alumni Ren Yi, Autumn Smith, and Lucy Jobe will share their educational backgrounds, career paths, insights into the job field, and leave room for you to ask questions, network, and engage! Samantha Quintell-Lenzi (MIIS) and Serena Rapp (MIIS) will co-moderate the event. The event is co-organized by Patricia Sieber (DEALL/T&I Program) and John Grinstead (SPPO) and co-sponsored by DEALL, The Institute for Japanese Studies, and SPPO.
