June 2013 – Welocalize and F-Secure will deliver a joint presentation at this year’s Summer Localization World, London 2013. The presentation, “Quality is a Ménage à Trois,” is a case study looking at the three-way relationship between the client (F-Secure), the Localization Service Provider (Welocalize) and the translator. This fascinating session will take place at this year’s LocWorld, held in London, on Day 1 (13th June) at 8.30am. The talk will cover how Welocalize and F-Secure explored the concept of translator motivation – by giving them “free time” which allowed ownership and self-guidance. The results – revealed in this session – will cover impact in terms of cost, motivation and quality.

Tanja Schmidt, Head of Welocalize’s German in-house translation team is an experienced translator and will be speaking with Mika Pehkonen from F-Secure. Mika is the document and localization manager at F-Secure. Headquartered in Finland, F-Secure is a leading developer of anti-virus, data storage and intrusion software. The session will also be facilitated by Antoine Rey, Senior Director at Welocalize.
