TAUS Industry Summit 2017 – Amsterdam – 22 – 24 March
The TAUS Industry Summit will kick off three straight weeks of global trade shows and events for us here at Iconic. Our CEO John Tinsley is heading to Amsterdam from the 22nd to the 24th of March to brainstorm on the rapid adoption of automation in the translation sector with other prominent industry leaders. Being held at the De Rode Hoed debate center, the Summit will look at the growing wave of automation not only in translation production (machine translation, intelligent TM), but also in translation management functions such as project, quality and vendor management (machine learning). The summit aims to produce a Translation Industry Innovation Roadmap for 2017-2021, providing an industry wide common framework for ongoing collaboration and improvement in key developing areas.
John will be part of the Machine Translation proceedings, sharing his thoughts, ideas and insights in a “knowledge cafe” style discussion. The roundtable will examine whether the latest developments in Neural MT and other technologies will make the dismissal of MT as a translation option unsustainable in the long run. With MT beginning to break through in industry areas like eDiscovery and patent translation, what is the next step for mass adoption of the technology? Increased transparency regarding translation quality evaluation, improved and updated pricing models, and productivity are sure to be among the hot topics at this year’s Summit.
