Easily extending and integrating your cloud-based translation system and having influence on the core development is something many translation departments and language service providers (LSPs) would love. Doing that on the base of community open source is the way a number of companies chose as something that works for smaller and mid-sized LSPs as well as for the translation departments of big companies. During this session we will discuss the examples of translate5 and OpenTM2, and how community open source works in our industry regarding organization, business impacts, financing, development, decisions and software architecture.

Takeaways: Attendees will understand how building community open source projects actually work in our industry – regarding organization, business impacts, financing, development, decisions and software architecture with examples from translate5 and OpenTM2.
