Using a computer-assisted translation (CAT) tool for translations isn’t that big of a deal anymore. Yet, it’s obvious that technologies can improve more for people involved in localization. Let’s have a look at how artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms enable agencies to leverage translators’ potential, automate the customer-supplier interaction and build an efficient supply chain management system. Not to mention the benefits that project managers will see.

Takeaways: The attendees will familiarize themselves with the technologies (including context-specific communication, cloud-based team management and smart chatbots for real-time project control) that will help them make their work easier, their staff more productive and less stressed and as a result — increase their margins.
