The third annual Computer Science Education Week 2012 (CSEdWeek) is celebrated this week, December 9-15, 2012. First endorsed in 2010 by Congressmen Vernon Ehlers and Jared Polis, CSEdWeek is observed every year during the week of Grace Hopper’s birthday (born December 6, 1906), a pioneer in computer science.

It includes advice, interviews, and case studies from industry professionals, as well as practical information on pre-production, production, translation, and testing of localized SKUs.
Written for producers, translators, development personnel, studio management, publishers, students, and anyone involved directly or indirectly with the production of localized games, this single-reference handbook provides insightful guidelines to all the tasks involved for planning and executing successful localizations.
