I'd like to draw your attention to the following localization
seminar in Seattle:

LOCALIZATION PROJECT MANAGEMENT
13 April 1999, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Marriott Residence Inn, Seattle, WA

Seminar leader: Karen Combe
$ 795, group discounts available

The ability of project managers on both the vendor and the
publisher side to manage projects well is of crucial
importance for the quality, the cost, and the timely delivery
of localization projects. Many localization project managers,
however never had any formal project management training.

This seminar will give new and experienced managers a solid
grounding in project management theory and practice. Taught
by an experienced localization project manager, it will use
examples from the localization field and show the benefits
of replacing a highly individualized process with one that is
standard, repeatable, predictable and consistent.
