In our “always on” content and development worlds, where the term “digital marketing” is essentially redundant, content shelf life is a fraction of what it only recently was, and “sim-ship” concepts have essentially been replaced by continuous development.

In my last post, Localization Metrics 101: A Crash Course in the Basics, I proposed that tracking basic indicators like on-time deliveries, average language quality scores, and throughput were vital to establishing a solid localization program.

What is a dashboard? As it is commonly understood, a dashboard is a panel on which important information is visually presented. When you’re in the driver’s seat of your car, that dashboard tells you, among other things, how fast you’re driving, how much fuel is in the tank, and whether or not there is sufficient oil pressure to protect the engine. The dashboard provides key information at a glance so that you, as a driver, can enjoy a smooth and safe ride to your destination.
