DALLAS (Aug. 18, 2014) - LocalizationGuy president Aki Ito's thoughts on how language professionals can help international brands are published in this month's edition of MultiLingual Magazine, a leading periodical of the globalization and localization industry.  Ito's article is framed around the struggles McDonald's Japan has endured over the past several years to maintain growth and revitalize its brand image.  Arguing that language professionals are much more than translators, Ito points out the ways the localization industry could engage with brands at more strategic level than is common today.
