May 19, Valencia – Pangeanic will attend machine translation Industry Leaders Forum on 2nd and 3rd June in Dublin. The TAUS Industry Leaders Forum is a unique gathering where around 60 directors of internationalization or globalization departments and services from global corporations, machine translation companies and successful technology start-ups, share best practices and experiences with translation companies and suppliers of language services. The shared interest of TAUS’ high-level meetings is to address common issues and challenges they face as key people in providing more efficient multilingual translation processes.
“Entrepreneurs and workers in the language industry are hardly aware of the strategic function they fulfil in this time of ‘hyperglobalization” says Jaap van der Meer, director of TAUS. “Politicians, businessmen and in fact consumers, citizens of the world, they all become more and more dependent on the language sector. This Forum is an ideal opportunity for decision makers to discuss common strategies and push innovation in the translation industry.”
As one of TAUS’ founding members and a success story in its MT data-sharing platform, Pangeanic has vested interest in attending the forum and share its findings. A frequent speaker on machine translation solution PangeaMT at TAUS events, Pangeanic’s CEO Manuel Herranz will meet other industry leaders in Dublin to discuss critical industry concerns on strategic, tactical and operational levels, such as the adoption of machine translation technology, geo-customization, interoperability, quality evaluation, data sharing, industry benchmarking, crowdsourcing, etc. Defining best practices, agreeing on common approaches and sharing metrics and resources feature high in Pangeanic’s agenda. Leading technological companies such as LinkedIn, Microsoft, Google, Adobe, Oracle, EMC, Cisco, TripAdvisor, Dell, Harley Davidson, PTC will also attend.
The Forum will be opened with a debate between Nicholas Ostler, author of the book “The Last Lingua Franca”, and Lane Greene, editor of the Economist and author of “You are what you speak”, discussing the future of English and the role of technology in global communications.
“The language industry holds the key to the success of ever more globalizing business,” says Wayne Bourland, director of localization at Dell and member of the TAUS Advisory Board. “The only way the global translation industry can scale up and deliver on the needs of the rapidly expanding customer base in many new markets, is by working together, agreeing on common approaches and sharing resources. TAUS offers a unique environment for this industry collaboration.”
The Forum will be followed by the QE Summit on June 4. At the QE Summit companies will discuss the specific challenges of translation quality evaluation.
