Translating (AKA “localizing”) a product and community as large as IMVU is a big deal and a complicated process. To help bring IMVU to users from around the world, IMVU relies on a system that combines both professional translators and crowdsourcing tools. As a result, IMVU not only ‘speaks YOUR language’ but also makes it easy for YOU to connect with and make friends from around the world!
For those of you who ‘localize’ for a living, IMVU will be attending the 2014 TAUS Worldwide Translation Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia on October 27 & 28, and speaking on the impact and value of localizing for our customers. Look us up if you’re attending!
