As an international company by design, localization is naturally an important part of GetYourGuide’s operations. Nimdzi spoke to Nicola Dorrington and Selcen Kalender about how their team contributes to the company’s global presence.
Unfortunately, Selcen made the difficult decision to leave GetYourGuide before the publication of this Lesson in Localization. However, her valuable input was instrumental in this project’s success, so we’ve chosen to retain her presence in the report.
Collaborative decision-making ensures that the localization team is aligned with broader company goals.
New languages have access to largely machine-translated content first; fully localized content is introduced as experts assess user demand.
Freelancers and LSPs are both critical to the translation and quality control supply chains, serving unique roles.
Optimizing localization operations at GetYourGuide means combining human expertise with tech tools and other resources to improve efficiency and make space for more creative input.
