  • Current Machine Translation trends and practices - Dragoș Ciobanu

    This session will illustrate with examples some of the cloud- and client-based MT engines available. It will also discuss their integration into current CAT tools, while also highlighting a range of benefits and challenges associated with using MT.

  • Tools and techniques for subtitling - from transcription to respeaking and translation - Alina Secară

    This session will outline a typical subtitling project workflow and present various technologies and skills which could be used in its deployment.

  • Weighted wordcounts - why not every grid can be accepted - Jerzy Czopik

    Counting words in CAT tools has always be a bit demanding. Customers expect the wordcounts to be weighted. This is nothing really new. However, recent developments in terms of weighting words are really alarming. In the past months I've seen agencies applying weighting to internal fuzzy matches the same way they do to "normal" matches. Applying this or changing the grid may result in a decent price reduction.  I would like to show you how a grid is applied and talk about why a percentage value applied may be good or bad.

  • How to set up your website translation projects - Dorota Pawlak

    When you translate and localize websites you need to spice up your work with the right mix of technical, linguistic and cultural skills. In this session we will focus on the first ingredient and break it down into basic chunks. For a start, you need to know what tools to use and how to process your files, in other words: how to set up your website translation project. You’ll see three most common website translation scenarios and learn how to proceed when your clients send you only a link to the website, an HTML file or a Word file with copied website content. The technical doubts won’t overwhelm you anymore, and you’ll be able to smoothly move past the project preparation step.

Exciting hands-on sessions!
