As part of its free industry services TAUS is launching a monthly Translation Technology Showcase Webinar – on every first Wednesday of the month at 8:00 am Pacific and 5:00 pm Central European Time – open to all users and buyers of translation technology and tools, and simply to anyone who is interested.
The one-hour webinars will usually feature two translation technologies in a similar category. TAUS will give an introduction and provide context. The technology vendors present their solutions in a crisp and to-the-point demonstration. Following a review and questions by a panel of experts, the audience will have a chance to ask questions. The questions and answers are documented in an online knowledge base on the TAUS web site.
“The translation technology sector is more dynamic than ever”, says Jaap van der Meer, director of TAUS. “There is a wide variety of translation, speech and language tools and technology solution offerings right now. We are entering the Convergence Era with translation as a utility embedded in every app, on every screen and delivered to every citizen in the world. Opportunities for the global translation sector have never been more exciting.”
The first TAUS Translation Technology Showcase Webinar will take place on June 5. The two technologies featured in this first webinar are Smartling and SYSTRANLinks, both aimed at helping companies to quickly and easily localize web sites.
