A lesson by Hannah Leske.
Rotary International has been uniting businesses and leaders to advance global goodwill and peace since its formation well over a century ago in 1905. With more than 35,000 member clubs and 1.2 million members, Rotary International is a global network of people who believe in the shared responsibility to create change and take action on humanitarian issues.
Current priority projects include fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies (Source: Rotary International). Short-term fixes are not enough — Rotary International focuses on creating lasting change with long-term solutions.
Nimdzi spoke to Patrick Nunes, who oversees the Global Communication and Design team at Rotary International, about the organization’s localization program and its role in furthering Rotary International’s global vision.

Who should we feature next?
Quality, quality, quality — it seems we’re always talking about quality in the localization industry, and rightfully so.
We’ve already seen that there are a number of different ways of setting up a language team. It’s rare nowadays to find enterprises opting for a fully in-house translation team, and companies typically go with either a hybrid model with some in-house language capabilities or simply forgo internal language resources altogether.
Nimdzi Co-Founder Tucker Johnson interviewed Miguel Sepulveda, Globalization Manager at King, author of the blog @Yolocalizo and researcher at Nimdzi Insights, on the topic of localization ROI.
