Because of the things I've learned through the course I had an easier time to learn the work and "solve" the exercises they gave me as a test.”

Andrej Zito

Hey, I’m Andrej! I started my localization career when I was 19 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 so that you can also enjoy a successful and rewarding career in localization.

In my free time, I climb, dance, and play games. 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

Do I need any prior knowledge to start the LPM 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!

Do you issue a certificate for completing the course?

Yes, our course comes with certification (see sample). 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? 😉

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

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

Can my company pay for the course?

Absolutely! Your company can use their credit or debit card to pay for your course. Please don't forget to enter your company's tax information during checkout on Stripe. You'll get an invoice and a receipt right after making the purchase.

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.

What TMS do you use for the course?

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

I’m working/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.

Will I be able to get a job with your certificate?

We don't guarantee that you'll get a job right at the end of your course. There are many factors that affect whether you get hired or not. 

 

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.

Should I first work as a translator before pursuing PM career?

A lot of our students come from a translation background. It certainly helps if you have a personal experience from "the other side", but you don't need to be a translator in order to become a good localization project manager. 

 

Our instructor Andrej has never done any translation (for the sake of everyone). And he did fairly well when it comes to managing projects 🙂
