India is going through a mobile revolution. India today has ~300 million mobile internet users and yet only 120 million English speakers. This means we have close to 200 million people on the internet today with no comprehension of the content presented to them. Given that we're adding 20 million mobile internet users every quarter, we're set to reach 500 million Internet users by 2017. As per a recent report, the number of Internet users in India could increase 24% with greater availability of local language content. Startups and established players are focusing more resources on their mobile apps or even going mobile-app only. To realize this opportunity, it is important that we have solutions available in Indian languages.

Hear industry leaders who are enabling Indian language solutions ascertain what is the opportunity ahead, the adoption curve and what is still lacking in the ecosystem. Key discussion themes include:

  • Does localization matter to the Indian web consumer. If yes, what is the demographics of this user base?
  • What could be the potential impact of enabling local language UX for commonly used applications that are only available in English?
  • What are the emerging white spaces wherein startups can build solutions in local languages?
  • Your journey of building the startup and focusing on Indian languages – key decisions that led to success and how you addressed challenges
