Andrej Zito

Hey, I’m Andrej! I started my localization career when I was 19 (that’s many years ago, but I’m not giving away my age) and learned pretty much everything on the job. I believe you can do the same – we learn best by rolling up our sleeves and doing the job. That’s why I started Localization Academy after 17 years in the industry.

I worked as a project/program manager for the biggest part of my career. I’m here to share my experience from both the client and vendor side with you so that you can also enjoy a successful and rewarding career in project management.

In my free time, I climb, dance, and play games. Here’s my promise: during your course, you’ll learn awesome skills, but we’ll also have loads of fun doing it. I’m not your typical stuffy-suit industry veteran – there will be lots of smiles and stories… and probably a little swearing!

Frequently asked questions

Localiza… what? Do I need any prior knowledge to complete the 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 is 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.

I’m working or studying. Will I have time for this?

Absolutely. We've recently made the course fully self-paced, so you can take as much time as you need to get through the lessons and do your assignments. There's no expiration date on your access to the course.

Do you issue certificates?

Yes — but you'll need to earn it by submitting the final assignments. Just watching the videos is not enough. You're in this to learn something, right? 😉


Keep in mind, the point of this localization course is not to serve as an academic qualification but to learn and build the necessary practical experience you need for a successful career in project management.

What TMS do you use for the course?

We use one of the most popular platforms Memsource. You'll have a license during your participation in the course.


By the way, if you like Memsource a lot, you can also complete their certification program. Learn more about that here: https://memsource.com/trainers/

What type of job will a localization course help me to get?

Typically, our graduates go on to find a position as junior project managers or project coordinators.

Will you help me find a job?

We don't guarantee that you'll get a job right at the end of your course. Our main goal is to help you discover what it's like to work as a localization project manager and give you an advantage when looking for a job.


However, we also work with companies searching for young talent and our graduates. If there's potentially a good fit, we will connect suitable candidates and potential employers.


We also host company-sponsored bootcamps, where potential employers are looking for specific types of candidates. You can keep an eye on our LinkedIn page for announcements.

What is this “simulation”?

Our simulation gives you the opportunity to manage two end-to-end simulated projects. It's a separate training offered to those who finished the main online course.


By putting all you’ve learned to the test, you will deal with limited budgets, tight deadlines, demanding clients, and unreliable vendors — a perfect simulation of what a real project manager does on a day-to-day basis.


We’ll keep a close eye on your progress, and at the end of the simulation, we’ll give you one-on-one feedback on your performance and clear guidelines on where you nailed it and where you can improve.
