Choose Centralized or Decentralized Localization Management

There is much to be said for both approaches. Centralized localization management provides translation services to the entire site team but does not usually have the domain expertise of each of the areas. Decentralized localization management has domain expertise spread throughout the organization, but it lacks the localization organization to help manage the process most effectively. It is also more difficult to achieve consistency with decentralized teams because they may not know what other teams around the world are doing. Evaluate the capabilities of the organization's resources and financial investment to decide what approach works best. In many cases, a hybrid approach, using some aspects of centralized management, along with local expertise, is the best solution.
