Hi!

This summer I would like to spend some weeks (up to 4) in USA to attend a localization course. Do you know any serious summer course? I already have some experience in localization, therefore I am not looking for a course for beginners.
Do you have any ideas or links?

Thanks!

Beatrice

Hi Beatrice,

The Austin Community College offers summer courses in localization. They also offer courses online.

I know there's an ocean in between but you may want to check it out:

In particular, there is a Summer school in Limerick at the beginning of June.

There's a taught master program together with the University of Limerick:

BTW, Limerick is associated with Austin.
Best luck

Thanks! Jul 21, 2004

The localization course is more an excuse than a real necessity.
The courses held in Austin are very interesting, but I have already been there, so I'd rather choose another city.
Any courses in California? The ideal solution is: morning at school, afternoon on the beach!
Thanks again
