Smartling Announces Global Ready Conference™ 2019

Company returns to San Francisco and London for annual user conference


New York - February 6, 2019 - Smartling, the premier software and language translation services company that established the category Translation Cloud, today announces Global Ready Conference 2019, the company’s annual conference in San Francisco, California, and London, England.

Today’s leading brands are doing everything they can to maximize every touch point on the consumer journey by delivering content across many content types, from web to smart watches. Language translation is a critical part of making the global consumer experience possible; and, so, the theme of this year’s Global Ready Conference is “Move the world with words.”

“Delivering personalized, creative and in-language experiences is essential for competing in today’s global marketplace,” said Annette Obermeier, Sr. Director of Marketing at Smartling. “If your job touches the international consumer experience, this is the event of the year designed for you.” Obermeier expects the conference to grow by more than 30% from last year.

The full day Global Ready Conference features hands-on workshops led by industry veterans, keynotes by leaders representing globally recognized brands and ample networking opportunities. Developers, localization managers, marketers and executives who are responsible for global growth will walk away with practical skills and concepts that can be used to shape a company’s international business strategy.

“If you’re starting to translate for the first time, trying to optimize the end-user experience, or needing to scale beyond your existing footprint, Global Ready Conference can help you achieve these goals,” said Brian O’Reilly, Smartling’s VP of Sales. “For people leading businesses through one of these three key stages of global operations, this conference is absolutely essential.”
