Invitation to Apply: 2019 Localization Lab Summit & Sprint

Localization Lab is now accepting applications for Localization Lab contributors interested in attending this year's Localization Summit and Sprint! The Summit and Sprint will coincide with the 2019 Internet Freedom Festival which takes place from April 1st - 5th in Valencia, Spain. The Summit will take place on March 31st and is a full day event. The Localization Sprint date and time are still TBD, however it will take place during regular IFF 2019 programming.

The Localization Summit and Sprint provide an opportunity for you as a Localization Lab translator and contributor to meet and communicate face-to-face with the Localization Lab staff; fellow volunteer contributors; regional human rights and civil society organizations and activists working on Internet freedom and governance issues; and developers of the tools that you work tirelessly to make available for those in need.

If you are interested in joining the Localization Lab community at IFF 2019 by participating in the Localization Summit, Localization Sprint, and community social events, please fill out and submit the application.
