In today's Lesson in Localization, we look at how Kahoot! does localization.

About Kahoot!

Kahoot! is a global learning and engagement platform that puts the fun back into learning. Users can create interactive and engaging learning sessions that can be accessed all around the world. Even better, the line between education and play becomes blurred with Kahoot!’s quizzes. Kahoot! is used by millions of teachers, students, and families, but is equally suitable for use in workplaces, too!


Stakeholder buy-in is improving rapidly as the focus turns to global expansion at the company level.

Key performance indicators are aligned with stakeholders’ own metrics so that each department can see how localization adds value to their operations

Freelance linguists are fundamental to localization success and are considered as much a part of the in-house team as anyone else in the department

Quality is determined by the impact of translated content, rather than traditional measures like error rate
