Transifex Sponsors Startup Weekend Events for Rising Entrepreneurs in Brazil

Localization Leader Assists Early Stage Startups in Burgeoning Brazilian Tech Industry

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - May 22, 2015) - Transifex,, a leading Localization Automation Platform (LAP) for modern technology companies, will be sponsoring three UP Global Startup Weekend events in Brazil to help entrepreneurs bring their ideas to fruition. Startup Weekends are 54-hour events where developers, designers, marketers, product managers, and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups.

Transifex will sponsor Startup Weekends in the following Brazilian cities: Florianopolis on May 22, Belo Horizonte on June 19 and Manaus on June 26. Each city has a different industry focus; for example, in Manaus entrepreneurs from the Mobile industry will gather to share ideas and launch their startup plans.

Transifex has been active in supporting early stage startups with its Localization Automation Platform and expertise. "We understand that early stage startups have limited budgets, and that you can't launch a startup globally without localizing content for your target markets," said Antonio J. Espinosa, COO of Transifex. "Startup Weekend provides the venue for great minds to meet and great ideas to happen. We are thrilled to be a part of that and share our localization solution with rising startups in the Brazilian tech sector."

"Attending a Startup Weekend is one of the best ways a budding entrepreneur can plug into their local startup community. With events in over 130 countries, teams find themselves connecting not just connecting locally, but cities across the globe as well," said John Beadle, Director of Startup Weekend at UP Global. "Transifex's own success as a global startup and expertise in localizing content for global markets makes Transifex an ideal partner for these Startup Weekends."

The Transifex Localization Automation Platform enables companies of all sizes to manage the process of localizing content to reach global markets. Transifex has customers in over 35 countries and localizes content in more than 150 languages.
