Andrej Zito

Hey, I’m Andrej! I started my localization career when I was 19 and learned pretty much everything on the job. And 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, where I mostly led localization projects for Microsoft, Autodesk and Intel.

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 about project management from scratch. But if you're completely new to translation/localization, we recommend starting with the free Introduction To Localization course.

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? 😉

How much time do I have to complete the course?

The course is designed to be self-paced, allowing you to progress at your own speed. Although the content is organized into "Days" (like Day 1, Day 2, etc.), these are simply modules and do not require completion within a specific number of days. 

Can I buy the certification later after finishing just the course?

Yes, you can still purchase the certification even after completing the main course.

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.
