The corona virus pandemic is weighing on us all now – personally and professionally. The LocWorld team is well and we hope you are, also.
Regarding LocWorld42 in Berlin, we are in negotiations with our conference venue, the InterContinental Berlin, and are forced to wait for further developments in Germany before we can make a definitive announcement. Meanwhile, we are investigating opportunities for a virtual and safely-distant way to get together, network and learn. We promise to let you know more as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding.

Translation quality is a trending topic at industry conferences these days. To pretend that this will be the “ultimate discussion” is pure irony. But we certainly have gathered a wise and varied panel of specialists. Two global software companies present their perspectives on methodologies and systems to ensure the most effective quality evaluation (QE). Two large language service providers present their metrics and scalable solutions. And one QE technology provider presents his software solution. Last but not least we have a researcher who presents the harmonization of DQF and MQM error typologies. And then there is you – the audience – who will take at least half of the session time (90 minutes!) to question everything and debate the ultimate solution. The panel will conclude with dos and don’ts: a take-away that will help everyone who faces similar challenges in their everyday practice.
