    Culture as Context: Why and How to Design for Multilingual Users

    11:40 AMIA Summit 2017 - Vancouver, BC, Canada

    IA Summit 2017 Presentation

    One out of every 5 Americans speaks a language other than English at home (and online). Information architects ignore this fact at their—and their users’—peril.

    This session will explore the impact that diverse, multilingual users should have on our designs. No, you don’t have to add “become an expert in every culture” to your To-Do List, but you should seek out quality research and smart partnerships to create the most effective interactive experiences.

    In this lively, optimistic, and example-filled session, you’ll learn about organizations who have successfully tackled this unique challenge—and how you can apply their success to your next project.

Let’s start a conversation about your needs and how I can help your group.
