How do you avoid making mistakes due to confusing legal terms if no official sources have been given? What do lawyers expect from us? Which is better: to look up the closest equivalents of English and American terms in our country’s law or to translate descriptively to stress the absence of such equivalents?

InText has been continuously improving its complaint processing and recording processes for 10 years. We use a unique technology for statistical analysis of causes of complaints and development of preventive actions. In the presentation, we will explain how the complaint record storage system is organised in the internal TMS and how we use Microsoft PowerBI for trend monitoring. We will also speak about regular meetings of our quality committee and describe how we keep track of each complaint life cycle.
Creative texts captivate readers with a graceful blend of content and flair. They work like magic – but there’s art, craft and science behind the playful swirls. And the same approach is needed to brew such messages for a new audience. In this session, we explore how creative texts come to life: the decision-making and language choices that shape the style of copy and content. And: what translators need to know (and use) to re-create the magic.

Yet, how important is it for the average Israeli to find vegemite in Italy, or get an updated list of border crossings into Iran?

This talk will focus on the changing landscape of the language industry today and in the future. It will touch on the needs of the industry and its customers and how the skills of those who work in the industry must adapt and combine in new ways to meet those needs.
The key to success in translators’ training is steadfast implementation of the “professionals train professionals” principle. Only professional translators can efficiently teach translation. And for this they need to develop both strategic and tactical routes for teaching different audiences.
