Brian McConnell

Director of Localization

Medium is a vibrant network of thinkers who care about the world and making it better — through their craft, their stories, and their ideas. As director of localization, Brian McConnell is leading Medium’s transition from an English-centric publishing platform to fully global and multilingual operation, a process which involves a combination of software localization, surfacing locally relevant content, and content translation tools. Prior to joining Medium, Brian was the head of localization for Insightly, a small business CRM service, and prior to that was a principal developer of the Worldwide
Lexicon, a pioneering crowd based translation platform.
