Is translation technology getting the better of us? How we need to make sure that we stay ahead of the technological curve. UTICamp-2016
Speaker: Jost Zetzsche, Localization technologist, author of Translator's Toolkit manual, publicist.
The general public is mesmerized by translation technology. No week goes by without major articles about the latest presumed breakthrough in machine translation or automatic interpretation, along with the same-old tired references to our favorite science fiction shows.
We need to get ahead of that conversation and steer it to our own advantage. One way of doing that is to actually become part of the many development projects that are happening around the world.
Jost Zetzsche, a well-known localization technologist, shared some ideas on how to do this at UTICamp-2016.
