Australian-owned software developer, Atlassian, has been supporting workplace collaboration for almost 20 years. You may have heard of Jira or Trello — in fact, your teams may even use them!
Today, Atlassian provides a plethora of tools and apps to help businesses simplify organization, communication, integration, strategic planning, and even coding and shipping. The company has offices all over the globe and its products are used by many thousands of teams.

Making the most of external support: with a reasonably small internal team, Atlassian localization experts need to rely on the support and expertise of multiple external partners, particularly for quality assurance steps.
