Conference Helps Companies Build Global Business - Increase ROI 
GENEVA. SWITZERLAND/February 4, 2003 - Seeking the rewards of true
success in the international marketplace, companies from around the
world will meet at the Localization Industry Standard Association's
(LISA) Global Strategies Summit being held March 3-6 in the San
Francisco Bay Area. Staging their 45th International Conference, LISA's
agenda for this four-day seminar is aggressive and multi-faceted,
focusing on the benefits of doing business globally and how the use of
established industry standards can dramatically increase a company's
bottom line.

Responding to the realities (and questions) of today's global
marketplace, opening day of LISA's Global Strategies Summit (Tuesday,
March 4) is packed with timely and important presentations. With a nod
to perfect product placement, the morning's lead speaker, Jean-Louis
Gassee of Allegis Capital and former President of Apple Products
Division says, "Silicon Valley continues to be the melting pot's melting
pot. What better place to discuss real globalization and localization
issues?" Gassee will speak on the lessons of executing global business
and how these should be responsibly communicated to the world. 

Calling on the best and the brightest minds in business, LISA's Global
Strategies Summit will focus on the needs of clients in a climate
increasingly driven by the Internet. Speakers will represent leading
companies such as Cisco, IBM, HP, Oracle, Avaya, Isogen International,
Star, RWS Group and other key players in the business of globalization,
internationalization, localization and translation. In a lecture and
workshop format, attendees will learn how successful companies are
making global commerce a priority while integrating business practices
across their organizations to the benefit of their partners, suppliers
and customers. 

Among the highlights of the summit:

-     Evaluating Globalization Management Systems
      . What are they, What should they be, How they compare

the world, the Global Strategies Summit will provide a focused view of
