Real-Time Translation Can Be Useful, But How Accurate Is It?

In today's information age, companies have a competitive need to communicate with their global customers in their own language. With the social media advancements, the urge to communicate in real time has become an ever-pressing expectation. Machine Translation has often been the center of controversy because we know it is useful, but how reliable is it?

Please join us for a complimentary seminar and luncheon on August 11th that will focus on how to incorporate localization best practices into your corporation’s Global Information Management (GIM) strategy. This seminar will provide best practice advice around global content and give you insights in:

  • Analyzing suitable content for Machine Translation
  • Intelligent Machine Translation
  • Assessing the solutions that best fit your organization’s goals

Additionally, you will have the opportunity to network and exchange localization knowledge with other industry leaders at a luncheon that takes place during the seminar. Space is limited so please register today.

Europe and International SIGs to do a joint progression at 2010 Technical Summit

The following announcement is from Jennifer O'Neill, Europe SIG Manager.

For the second year running, the International Technical Communication SIG and the Europe SIG are going to do a joint progression on international issues related to technical communication.

If you're interested in presenting a topic related to localisation, internationalisation, cross-cultural/cross-language communication, working abroad, legal issues related to international communication, or another topic related to international or specifically Europe (or indeed EMEA – Europe, Middle East and Africa) drop me a note and I'll start organising some ideas.

For the moment send your ideas to me (email hidden; JavaScript is required). I'll gather them together with Tracy Nathans-Kelly of the International SIG and we'll post a list so that everyone can see what they could contribute.

I've done a few progressions at the annual conferences and they are fun and stimulating. A very interactive way to discuss a topic.

The deadline for submitting proposals is 5 October 2009. So there's not too much time left.

Manager, Europe SIG
