Research participants invited!

Hello! My name is Loubna Bilali. I am a doctoral candidate
in translation studies at Kent State University. I am
conducting a study that will help me collect data for my dissertation. The aim
of my study is to describe, analyze, and evaluate the
localization training offered in North American universities from curricular and
market points of view. Overall, the study presents a
three-pronged needs assessment framework for localization, drawing on the
perspectives of three groups of stakeholders in the
localization industry (employers, trainers, and practitioners) to ensure the
development of a well-informed and systematic methodology
for gathering requirements in order to improve on localization training.

As a participant, you will be asked to respond to an online
questionnaire. I seek responses from translators,
localization practitioners, localization instructors, project managers,
vendor managers, LSP managers, and LSP human resources
managers. If you are one of these professionals, I would really
appreciate 20 minutes of your time. Please click on the
following link: (or
cut and paste it onto your internet browser) to access the
study. Some participants who complete the questionnaire may
subsequently be asked to be interviewed. Participation in
this study will contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the fields of
translation studies and localization training.

Your participation is entirely voluntary. You may choose not
to participate or you may discontinue your participation at
any time without penalty or loss of benefits to which you are
otherwise entitled. You will be informed of any new,
relevant information that may affect your health, welfare, or willingness to continue
your study participation.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or

Thank you very much in advance.

All the best,
