Over the past years, the University of Limerick (Ireland) and Austin Community College in Texas (USA) have been two of the first academic institutions world-wide to offer an academic programme of study in localisation, backed and supported by industry leaders on both sides of the Atlantic. Now they have co-ordinated their efforts to bring these programmes to the wider localisation community at two different venues: the LRC in Ireland and ACC in Texas/USA. This is the first time that two third-level colleges in two continents invite you to join their International Localisation Summer School where leading instructors from the USA and Europe will deliver the courses.

For information on the US-based Summer School at Austin Community College: 18-20 June 2003,

Participation at the Summer School will be acknowledged by The Institute of Localisation Professionals (TILP) as part-fulfilment of the requirements for professional membership. Participants will receive a TILP certificate of attendance on successful completion of courses (
