Fast localization is not just about doing all the same tasks as before, but quicker. Working incrementally can actually bring cost savings, enable better localization quality, and provide us with more time, tools, and opportunities than ever before to make our work even more meaningful and innovative. The only catch is that you might need to learn a new language.
