We are used to thinking about the translation industry as a primarily customer-facing, management business. But if we look at the translation business as the data-rich industry that it is, there are a couple of very interesting, fresh concepts and ideas that arise. Step inside this session to find out how you can leverage your translation memories and glossaries to tune neural machine translation on a project, client or field level; why we are siloing language data and why data sharing is beneficial for all industry players; and how to apply data science to the translation business for maximum benefit.

Takeaways: Attendees will learn how data science, data management and data aggregation pertain to the translation business, what a data-driven workflow design is and why it could help you benefit from the latest achievements in neural machine translation.
