The translation and localization market is changing fast — and right before our eyes. This panel discussion gathers some of the main voices that report on the market, with each discussing how they uniquely support the localization industry: their audiences, their sources and their specific approaches. How they see the way that industry participants consume information changing. Why the language industry doesn’t get more mainstream business news coverage. How the private equity movement is likely to impact and improve the perceived value of translation and localization services. What the language industry needs to do as a whole to publicize and promote innovations in language services and technology and their wider impact.
