Fast translation turnaround times mean immediate access to the best vendors for the job. Wherever they may be. To solve this problem, you cannot limit yourself to a handful of translators you personally know. You need to find the best one out of all the professional translators in the world. It’s a problem too big to solve for humans. Unless they get help from machines, that is. Our experience with T-Rank presents a way to effectively measure performance of translators and rank them as humans would do, only better — taking into consideration more factors that define a professional translator and eliminating the bias of human decisions.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn how to use data and artificial intelligence to improve processes in the translation industry.
