Kania will moderate session speakers from Haufe, Ceridian, HappyOrNot, and Atlassian. This is intended to be an interactive discussion that will connect the audience with the presenters in a lively and engaging forum.
Kania is an 18-year veteran of the localization industry and has held roles in sales, account management, and quality assurance. She is a frequent presenter at industry events that include LocWorld, GALA, and ELIA, and she has published numerous articles on various localization topics. Based in Barcelona, Kania is heavily involved with the local linguist community, having opened the Barcelona chapter of Women in Localization. She currently holds the post of global Sponsorship Director within the organization.
