About Slack

Slack is where the future works — an ambitious headline from a company that has been making waves redefining how we communicate at work. Now part of the Salesforce family, Slack certainly isn’t afraid of taking on big ideas. Restructuring your work life. Simplifying teamwork. Allowing users to focus on what truly matters. Pushing the envelope when it comes to localization.

Yes, we’ve seen THAT too. The number of conversations Nimdzi has had with clients who reference Slack as a new tool for managing their localization workflow in recent months has been staggering. For this Lesson in Localization we sat down with Anca Greve, Director of Localization at Slack, so she could walk us through why Slack is a company — and a team — to keep an eye on!


A (relatively) small but mighty team: The team is very mature in terms of localization processes and is not afraid of innovating. Experimenting is part of the company’s DNA!

All roads lead to Slack: The designed processes and tech have been implemented with one aim — to centralize all localization-related work in the tool itself.
