Globalization Specialist, SAS Institute
Manfred Kiefer is a Globalization Specialist for SAS Institute Inc., where he works with developers and testers around the world. He used to supervise translations to European languages at SAS EMEA HQ, and to troubleshoot customer-reported NLS problems. His main areas of expertise are software localization and internationalization, and as a result he has a broad overview of the whole spectrum of SAS products and solutions on different platforms, including Windows, UNIX, and z/OS. A speaker at international SAS conferences, Kiefer has written several white papers to explain the "whys" and "hows" of internationalization. Last but not least, he made significant contributions to the Unicode Common Locale Data Repository (CLDR). A SAS user for more than twenty years, he studied languages and history at Mannheim University, Germany.
