Move On Up - Furthering Your Localization Career - Hristina Racheva

Landing a role in localization requires hard work and thorough preparation.

However, the reality is once you start the job, your self growth and career development work does not end. As organizations grow rapidly and expand internationally, it’s more important than ever that localization professionals play an active role in the process. And that requires continuously learning new skills, using new tools and collaborating with ever growing number of stakeholders.

Whether you are looking to have bigger impact in your organization, get a promotion, or apply for that dream job that will take your career to the next level, this workshop is for you.

Here is what you will learn:

  • How to position yourself strategically within your organization and identify areas of development to increase your influence
  • How to gain the right skills and knowledge to build your authority within localization and beyond
  • How to remain competitive on the job market by being strategic about your resume/CV and sharpening your interview skills

Localization Career Coach

Hristina started her career as a translator within the European institutions but quickly realised that as much as she loved languages she didn’t enjoy translating. She got her first role in localisation at Google and later joined Skyscanner where she’s currently Head of Localisation. She offers localisation consulting, supporting organisations at the beginning of their localisation journey and also teaches her signature course “International User Experience” at UX bootcamps and workshops.

Looking back at her career trajectory, she realised that what helped her succeed and grow was her endless curiosity, continuous learning and building relationships in the industry. Having found the right formula, she recently started offering career consulting to support aspiring and ambitious professionals grow and achieve the career they envision.
