Nope, you don't need to have any experience with localization. I’ll explain everything you need to know from scratch using my (poor) drawing skills. All you need is a computer, a good Internet connection… and some good coffee helps too!

- Anyone interested in localization.
Hey there, I’m Andrej! I like to think, create and solve puzzles.
(Also, I'm trying to fix the education system)
I started my career in localization when I was 19 and learned pretty much everything on the job. And I believe you can do the same — we learn best by rolling up our sleeves and doing the job.
So what's the purpose of overpriced education and getting a degree? I don't know. I think it's time for a change. That's why I started Localization Academy in 2021.
I hope that by creating affordable and practical online courses, our students will discover their future careers in weeks, not years.
Here’s my promise: during your course, you’ll learn awesome skills. But we’ll also have loads of fun doing it. I’m not your typical stuffy-suit industry veteran. Plus I have a good mic (and the voice to go with it).
