Media Globalization at Yahoo


After several years away from full-time internationalization work, I’m happy to announce a significant change. I am working as the Media Globalization Architect at Yahoo. This is a dream job for me, and one that will definitely be challenging.

My primary globalization experience has been gained through developing internationalization frameworks and APIs, particularly for the Java platform. Sure, I’ve also worked to define best practices for Java EE apps as well, but never on the scale of Yahoo’s media properties! And that’s exciting.

I hope you’ll join me here in this blog from time to time as I write about some of my experiences as a Globalization Yahoo! I haven’t educated myself on Yahoo’s corporate blogging policy, but I do know that I’m tasked with developing and maintaining thought leadership in the globalization arena, particularly for web-based media. So it doesn’t seem unreasonable to share some of my ideas and experiences here.

Until next time,
John O.
