Are you attending the Internet Freedom Festival in Valencia, Spain this year? Join us at the 2019 Localization Lab Summit, taking place the day before IFF starts, on Sunday the 31st of March.

The Localization Summit is a chance to identify challenges and opportunities in tool adoption and localization. It's an event for anyone invested in making digital security and circumvention tools accessible for a global audience, promoting local content creation, and supporting more linguistic diversity in the digital sphere is welcome to apply. We are looking for folks working on Internet Freedom technologies or content for a diverse, global audience, like journalists, funders, human rights defenders, digital security trainers, community organizers, UX experts, and developers. We especially welcome communities that use or or are in need of digital security and circumvention resources that are translated, adapted, or created for their unique linguistic, cultural, and technical needs.

The Summit will take place in Valencia, Spain from 09.00 to approximately 18.00 the day before the official start of the Internet Freedom Festival, so please book your tickets accordingly. The Localization Lab Summit provides an opportunity for stakeholders in the internet freedom community to meet and collaborate with the Localization Lab staff, localization contributors, regional human rights and civil society organizations, activists working on Internet freedom and governance issues, and developers of the tools we make available for communities in need.
