Hello!

I am an IT consultant and I would like to work in the localization field.
Does anyone know what are the possible technical certifications?
Which one is the best?
Could you send me some links?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Like most things in IT Apr 14, 2010

Like most things in IT there is no official certification in this field...
I guess most depends on what products you are using SAP, Siebel, Oracle, php or COBOL...
Some hands on experience with double byte enabling, international date formats and left to right and right to left scripts can be handy, but in short it all depends on the field and products...
