Folks across the globe are wired differently. Therefore, it’s key to design and market a product brand with an eye on cultural adaptation to regional markets. Get a competitive edge. And keep it. At the speed of need. A product unlocalized is a product unsold. An ROI unreaped.
The recording of this one-hour presentation is a roller coaster ride through pains and gains in the pre-natal product development process. We’ll review contextual, functional and visual elements to consider for producing a culturally fitted product brand and resurface just in time for a quick peek into glocal strategy for product acceptance in new market entry.

The presentation featured several case studies and an in-depth look at the relationship between branding and the needs of the global marketplace, including culture, localization, and internationalization.
This presentation targets business managers, marketing managers, product managers, internationalization and localization managers, and anyone else wanting to learn more about the product localization, internationalization, and culturalization process.
