ICE 2012 – Get Ready To Roll With Us!

Day one at ICE Totally Gaming 2012 is coming to a close, and we could not be more excited! With our current track record of successful partnerships with companies in the gaming industry, we knew that participating at ICE Totally Gaming would be a good bet.

Ok, all jokes aside—We have had such a great experience with the event so far. Plenty of great meetings with potential clients, and even some of our customers, like William Hill.

Today, Emma Durant is speaking at the IT Support and Digital Marketing Seminar Theatre at 15:00-15:45, giving her presentation on  Managing Global Web Operations Effectively – The Top 5 Trends. If you didn’t make it over there today, stop by our booth L1-21 to chat with Emma one on one, on how clients can maximize their Global Digital Operations:

  • Why localizing content from various formats, while keeping consistent branding, is crucial to your  success
  • How instrumenting (applying appropriate tracking tags and codes to ads and landing pages) yields measurable campaign performance tracking
  • How localized search engine marketing optimizes content and gives insight into how your customers find and engage with your content

Looking forward to day two with the team. Don’t miss Stuart Sklair in the IT Support and Digital Marketing Theater at 15:00-15:45 as he provides insight into:

Best practices for getting online gaming into multiple languages—the full lifecycle of localization and translation. Your content comes from all areas of the business,  from back-office systems, web applications, and from the static website itself. Formats vary widely, and include text, graphics, and audio. All of these variables must be accounted for, and must be equipped for publishing to the web as well as various mobile devices.


Global Data Privacy

Meet Joe Dehner:

–          Head of the International Business practice group

–          Concentrates his experience on multinational business and securities disputes


Joe joins Lionbridge for two, ten-minute podcast sessions covering Global Data Privacy.  Global Data Privacy is a hearty compliance topic, much like FCPA.  Any business handling cross-border personal information must comply with widely differing laws and regulations that protect personal data.

The first ten-minute session addresses the challenges for Global Data Privacy including collection, process, usage and storage. It will be of interest to any C-level executive or in-house counsel of businesses that deal with employees, customers or vendors in more than one country.

The second ten-minute session covers the solution for handling personal data according to local data privacy laws worldwide.  This session outlines a checklist for managing personal data compliance.

Marketing Translation Unveiled

Do you know what a “marketing translation” is? Do you think you can tell marketing translation from copywriting? Do you know where to look for information about marketing translations?

I want to introduce you to “marketing translation” from the perspective of a translator. I am not going to take into business or financial requirements aimed at getting better gross margins: It’s not my cup of tea.

I also want to keep things simple, so I am not going to present and elaborate on external theories and approaches to the phenomenon.

In this post I will focus in particular on the first challenge: Finding a common definition Continue reading »
