Meet your instructor

The Localization Project Manager course instructor Andrej Zito

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 16 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 create content, 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

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!

The five-week localization course is broken down into two weeks of practical training, followed by three weeks of “on the job” simulation.

You will encounter structured video lessons, assignments, projects, and personalized feedback sessions. Everything is available online from the comfort of your home.

Absolutely. With just the right mix of set structure and flexibility, the localization course will fit right into your schedule. You will need to invest between one and two hours per day during the training phase and two to three hours per day during the simulation phase.

Yes. All graduates will receive a certificate to prove their successful completion of the full course. You must finish both training and simulation to be eligible. You’ll also get a recommendation on LinkedIn to boost your profile.

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.

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/

Andrej is located in Vancouver and is therefore available during PDT / PST times. Rest assured that if you send an email, he will respond to you as soon as possible.

There’s no better way to learn than to do. After teaching you the necessary parts for two weeks, you’ll be thrown in at the deep end and tasked with managing two end-to-end simulated projects by yourself.

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.

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

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.
