A lesson by Gabriel Karandysovsky.
If you haven’t heard about Smartsheet, you’d better dust off your knowledge of collaborative work management software solutions. Smartsheet is the enterprise platform for work management and leading a segment that, over the past few years, has become more and more integral to the way companies structure their operations. There are a lot of bells and whistles to Smartsheet — as a work management platform it touches on so many areas of work, from project and portfolio management, marketing and creative management and strategic transformation, allowing all of these areas to be managed consistently across an organization, at scale.
As a company embracing the needs of the modern-day workplace, Smartsheet understands one additional key parameter: at the end of the day, they’re addressing a global workforce. Indeed, the company claims “we’re international by default.” For this Lesson in Localization, we spoke with Carsten Kneip, Director of Localization, who, over the last year and a half, has been endeavoring to turn Smartsheet’s localization program into an example others can follow.
Smartsheet Localization runs on Smartsheet: Smartsheet’s work management platform is central to the entire localization operation, not only connecting all stakeholders across the organization, but also all vendor partners, and all systems. Smartsheet as an end-to-end Localization lifecycle management tool: Win-win for everyone!
Focus is on depth, not breadth (for now): The localization team has been playing a key role in continuing to optimize the Smartsheet platform’s presence in their key markets, and it has been paying off!

Making travel plans hasn’t always been as simple as it is today. Though brick-and-mortar travel agencies might seem like a relic of a bygone era, they once played an important role in the travel economy, allowing travelers to book flights and hotel accommodations. Yet, with the rise of the internet, a well-planned vacation is just a few mouse clicks (or smartphone taps) away — thanks in large part to online travel agencies like Booking.com, one of the largest online travel agencies in the world, with 554 million users visiting the site in March 2023.
