Taking Over the World: the Flickr Way

In June 2007, Flickr launched its first localized versions of the site, expanding the interface from one language to eight. In this session you'll hear from Flickr's lead internationalization engineer about the social and technical challenges involved in the internationalization, and the solutions we used to overcome those problems. This talk will be of particular interest to attendees from ventures which have yet to approach the international arena, providing ideas on how to prepare for international expansion, and when to actually consider "pressing the big red button". But we also hope it will offer a broader glimpse into the way this busy, ever growing site handles large-scale challenges.
