Localizing the Best Legal Resources: Global Lessons of Collaboration and Inspiration

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Technology is global - laws are local. This session explores how to bridge the gap, examining how legal resources from one jurisdiction can be localized for another. International and national examples will illustrate how collaboration can provide your state with access to great legal resources - and save time and money. Speakers from the UK, Canada and California will highlight a range of leading legal resources, describe how collaboration can happen and provide practical guidance on localizing content. Specific examples will demonstrate how web content, publications, instructional videos, and a game have been localized, as well as translated and produced in different languages.
