GALA – Globalization and Localization Association

Globalization and Localization Association


The Globalization and Localization Association is a fully representative, non-profit, international industry association for the translation, internationalization, localization, and globalization industry. The association gives members a common forum to discuss issues, create innovative solutions, promote the industry, and present a joint – and more powerful – voice within the industry and to the outside community.

On April 15, 2002, GALA was created by 15 localization companies from 12 countries on four continents. The creation of GALA reflects the composition of the internationalization, localization, and globalization industry, which is made up of thousands of companies all over the world providing a wide range of products and services. Many of these companies expressed the need for a fully representative, international industry organization. We were founded on the belief that real industry progress will come from working together to share information, fostering innovative ways to promote ourselves and our industry, and offering our clients unique, collaborative value.

In addition, we provide a mechanism to create opportunities for its members to generate new business. All companies providing translation, localization, internationalization, or globalization products or services are invited to join GALA.
