Limited Resources on Localization Education

The lack of free localization education resources on the web was the main driving force behind Lokalise's decision to build an online academy. For industry professionals and entrepreneurs interested in localization, finding the educational material they needed for such a niche area of study was a struggle. Still, Lokalise was determined to find a way to offer it to them.

Building a Vibrant Community of Learners

Lokalise wanted to create a dedicated online space that would allow these experts and professionals to network, learn more about localization, and, even more so, get certified in the field. Committed to providing constant support and feedback, the Lokalise team was looking for solid community-building and course-creation features that would help them build certification programs and short-form micro-learning courses that were easy to digest.
