The corona virus pandemic is weighing on us all now – personally and professionally. The LocWorld team is well and we hope you are, also.
Regarding LocWorld42 in Berlin, we are in negotiations with our conference venue, the InterContinental Berlin, and are forced to wait for further developments in Germany before we can make a definitive announcement. Meanwhile, we are investigating opportunities for a virtual and safely-distant way to get together, network and learn. We promise to let you know more as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding.

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.
