Summary:This free webinar will be a summary of interactive workshops series designed to provide participants with a broad knowledge of localization of images and graphics technics.
Description
This Free webinar is an official trailer of a two series webinar course, consisting of a series of interactive workshops on Localization of images and graphics. This training series aims to introduce translators and language professionals to the localization of those elements that, due to their graphic nature, cannot be processed with common localization tools. In particular, we will focus on the edition of static images and animated elements that may be contained in various file formats. These skills are particularly relevant for website localization but are also applicable to software localization and even "traditional" translation of DOC or PDF files that contain graphic elements.

Workshop 101- Localization of images and graphics
Workshop 102- Localization of images and graphics
Bonus lesson 103 - Localization of images and graphics: Edition of animated banners (Flash movies).
