How will our industry look in the future? Will the current top players still be the leaders? Will an outsider disrupt our industry as Airbnb, Uber and YouTube did, or is our industry more difficult to disrupt? What will be the impact of machine translation? In this presentation, we will discuss how technology disrupted other industries, what may happen in our industry and what opportunities may come out of it. The session’s topics are inspired by the discussions we had during past conferences, the interviews to the main stakeholders of our industry and the discussions with the world’s most active venture capitalists.

Takeaways: Attendees will gain new perspectives on what the future of the translation industry will look like, learn how to reuse content and evaluate technology from a strategic standpoint.
