Meet your instructor
Carlos García Gómez
Hey, I’m Carlos! I have 7+ years of experience working in the technology department of different language service providers such as Donnelley Language Solutions and SDL plc. I’m currently working as a Software Localization Engineer at Vistatec, with technical-related duties on software, website, and e-learning projects with some of the largest brands and companies in the world.
When I’m not working, I love to stay active with sports, read, game, and watch movies and TV shows. But my true passion is traveling and learning about new cultures – and of course, spending time with my loved ones.
Frequently asked questions
When is the course going to be available?
We're aiming to launch the on-demand course in Q3 2023.
Do I need any prior knowledge to start the LE course?
Nope, we’ll teach you everything you need to know from scratch. All you need is a reliable internet connection, a computer… and some good coffee helps too!
What will be the course format?
If you've ever taken a Udemy course, you'll feel at home. You will encounter structured video lessons and assignments. We also have a community platform on Discord where you can engage with other students and instructors.
What TMS will you use for the course?
We use one of the industry standard platforms Trados Studio. You'll have a license during your participation in the course.
Do I have to know any programming language?
Absolutely not! This is a common misconception that localization engineers need to code. They don't... although having some programming background certainly helps.
Will you issue a certificate for completing the course?
Yes, our course will come with a certification. But you'll need to earn it by submitting the final assignments. Watching the videos is not enough... you're in this to learn something, right? 😉
