Shunee Yee, Founder and CEO of CSOFT International, led the talks stating that, “more and more Chinese companies are trying to shift their business models to sell their products abroad. Many Shenzhen companies started as cheap manufacturers and some of them have become leading brands in global businesses.”
From February 28 to March 2, 2017, the 33rd LocWorld Conference was held in Shenzhen, China. Google, Alibaba, IBM, and 300 other business representatives from approximately 30 countries gathered together with experts in localization to discuss how AI and automated translation is changing the world economy. Shunee Yee, founder and CEO of CSOFT International, delivered a keynote speech on the “Future of Work”, which drew great attention.
The annual LocWorld conference is returning from February 28th to March 2nd with many influential speakers and topics to look forward to. Last year’s conference was a success, discussing topics such as how to engage global customers profitably and the importance of culture when connecting people around the world. To get a sneak peek into what to expect at a LocWorld Conference, we’ve asked our VP of Greater China Business and Global Operations, Philippe Cao, to share his experience from last year’s event.
In this changing world of increased communication between cultures and the burgeoning digitalization of many of our common day to day processes, it is vital that companies stay ahead of the latest localization trends. LocWorld, an annual conference that takes place in venues all over the world, brings in Keynote speakers and luminaries in the localization field and seeks to provide a chance for companies and interested parties to gather together to learn and share new ideas.
