Asia Polo

“The Localization Project Manager Course is one of the best courses I’ve attended so far. Andrej makes sure you understand every single step by providing you with all the information you need as a beginner. Moreover, he makes you learn in an active way to prove you actually got how to deal with specific tasks.”

Kateřina Perháčová

“This course is straight-forward, well-structured and instructions are easy to follow. You get to share a social space with Andrej and other students – a great way to check if you understand an issue correctly or get help if you get stuck with one of the tasks.”

Your instructor

Hey, I’m Andrej! I started my localization career when I was 19 and learned pretty much everything on the job. I believe you can do the same – we learn best by rolling up our sleeves and doing the job. That’s why I started Localization Academy after 17 years in the industry.

I worked as a project/program manager for the biggest part of my career. I’m here to share my experience from both the client and vendor side so that you can also enjoy a successful and rewarding career in localization.

In my free time, I climb, dance, and play games. I’m not your typical stuffy-suit industry veteran — there will be lots of smiles and stories… and probably a little swearing!
