Interviewers: Tetyana Struk, Joseph Kovalov

Speakers: Svetlana SvetovaVolodymyr KukharenkoMichael Yepanov, Igor Marach, Stanislav Kaleniuk

We all love stories. Especially success stories. They always inspire and give strength. It often seems that the path of the hero in these stories was easy, simple, and success came into his or her life quite naturally. However, at this session we want to show other pages of our heroes ' lives: the first steps, hard decisions, struggle for survival; and to discuss what gives them strength and what supports.

Mind the Context! UTICamp-2019

Speaker: Ruslan ShtykLead Software Engineer at Smartling

In this talk we'll have a few words about what we (as Smartling) understand under visual context and why it is essential.

Context is an important tool that serves to improve quality, shorten translation time and optimize costs. We'll see how working on content without any context makes the job of a translator difficult (if not impossible) to do well.

Smartling, as a leader in the industry, takes visual context to a whole new level and has a team dedicated to expanding and perfecting solutions for this mission-critical need.

Different Points of View on MT Post-Editing. UTICamp-2019

The presentation by Svetlana Svetova and Pavel Dunaev at UTICamp-2019 was a fascinating dialogue between a post-editing customer and a translator. In their discussion, Svetlana and Pavel tried to find out what a post-editing customer wants and how they see the process. What is the background to PEMT and why is it necessary? How do you manage the parties’ expectations? And, of course, they talked about the skills a post-editor should possess and where they can be learned.
