    14:00 – 14:30 Which GlobalLink Am I?

    With multiple GlobalLink solutions available to help clients manage their global content, it can sometimes be confusing for those new to multilingual content to determine which product or products will best serve their needs. During this session, attendees will see typical use cases for each product and have the ability to ask questions about which product would drive the most efficiencies based on their content, internal structure and overall business goals. This session is intended for attendees who are considering GlobalLink for the first time, or if you are curious about how other GlobalLink products can supplement your current technology suite.
