Meet Conduit Presenter Laura Dent

Get to know a bit more about our #Conduit2017 speakers! Don’t forget to register for the conference and workshops.

Laura Dent has several decades of experience working in technical communication, specializing in localization. As a freelancer, she provides her clients with localization of single-sourcing systems. Previously, at Rosetta Stone, she created systems that enabled SimShip (simultaneous shipment) of all software and documentation, an almost unheard-of achievement. Laura has a passion for languages, and speaks Russian, Italian, Spanish, French, and (a little) Japanese. She teaches technical communication to computer science majors at James Madison University.

Staying in sync with the rapid cycles of Agile software development can be a challenge for any technical communicator, and even more so when localization is involved. Localization includes both the technical and linguistic aspects of translating software and documentation into other languages. You can be a hero in your organization by creating a smooth process to combine the seemingly incompatible processes of agile development and localization.
