GALA 2016, the annual conference of the Globalization and Localization Association, was host to a number of highly informative, industry-specific sessions, including "VideosWithoutBorders — Storytelling and Messaging to the World," presented by lifelong philanthropist and entrepreneur Michael Smolens.
Photo courtsey of GALA
I recently attended the 2016 conference of the Globalization and Localization Association (GALA) in New York City. GALA is a nonprofit membership organization that advocates for the language sector by, in its own words, "creating communities, championing standards, sharing knowledge, and advancing technology."
As I live in Australia, attending the GALA conference required a large commitment of both time and money, including 24+ hours of travel and the cost of airline tickets, transportation to and from the airport, and lodging (not to mention time away from the office). Yet I was not the only long-distance traveler there; in addition to encountering other Australians, I met people from Argentina, Ukraine, Estonia, Canada, Poland, France, Italy, Geneva, and of course the USA.
What is Goal?
The state of affairs that a plan is intended to achieve and that (when achieved) terminates behavior intended to achieve it; "the ends justify the means"
“The difference between a goal and a dream is the written word”
Freelance translators in the U.S. are about to gain another tool for growing their businesses. LinkedIn and social media marketing in general have already proved to be extremely valuable marketing tools, and now LinkedIn is rolling out its new ProFinder tool, which will provide freelance translators with even more opportunities.
