At its best, translation automation allows companies to translate and publish vast amounts of content without ever touching it. No cost per word, no manual transactions, no bottleneck. In this workshop we will help you understand the key components of end-to-end automation for translation from authoring to translation, vetting and publishing. We will explore how to get one language out of a content management system and multiple languages back in without cut and paste or manual intervention. You will also learn about the gaps in technology that can sabotage your automation plans. After attending this workshop, you will be able to identify the technologies that your organization may need for full or partial end-to-end localization, including:

  • Web content management systems
  • Translation management systems
  • Project management solutions
  • Machine translation
  • Crowdsourcing
  • Middleware/Integrations
