TAUS has recently launched the Quality Dashboard. The Quality Dashboard allows buyers and providers of translation and translators to measure, track and benchmark the productivity, efficiency and quality of translation in real time. The Quality Dashboard is made possible through the API that TAUS has made available under an open-source license, which allows developers and users of translation technologies to integrate with the Dynamic Quality Framework. Plug-ins are now available for SDL Trados Studio, SDL WorldServer and MateCat. Plug-ins for the Quality Dashboard will also become available for SDL TMS, Memsource, Lingotek, XTM Cloud and Unbabel.

In this session users and integrators of the Quality Dashboard will share their perspectives on the benefits of this industry-shared platform for quality evaluation and benchmarking. Five short presentations will be presented, followed by a discussion then questions and answers with the audience.
