Yes, we will discuss ROI (return on investment) for localization programs. We will frame the conversation within the larger context of defining metrics that matter, which is to say metrics that matter to the C-Suite.

What metrics should YOU use to track ROI. Well, that of course depends. Every situation is different and warrants a custom approach. But there are also some commonalities.

This episode is for client-side globalization managers, vendor-side account managers and senior customer success managers, and anybody who wants to learn how to speak the language of the C-Suite - the language of data!
