Insightful and very current

This is a great program - congrats and Thank You for such an insightful podcast! I work in the localization industry and also happen to end up in it “by accident”, but I’m glad I never looked back. Listening to your podcast has inspired me to continue to learn even much more about the language industry and all its ramifications, so much so that now I’m continuing my education in the field. I just discovered the program this year but I have been catching up with all previous episodes. Today, I have a better appreciation for my role in this industry. Moreover, I feel that there’s still so much more to explore and learn about localization, internationalization, globalization, translation, interpretation, and global communication in general, and I’m excited to continue the journey. Keep up the great work!
