Ms. Ray is a highly accomplished global software marketing consultant and author. Her specialties include enterprise globalization, international marketing, and global product development. As an analyst, she will oversee the firm’s Europe and Asia-focused translation, localization, and globalization industry research projects.
Prior to joining Common Sense Advisory, Ms. Ray was the Managing Editor for the Localization Industry Standards Association (LISA).

“Rebecca can quickly pinpoint exactly where and why an organization will experience the most pain and stress as it expands globally. With close to 50% of our research clients now headquartered or operating in Europe and Asia, adding a Senior Analyst full-time to help cover these regions is essential.
