Event description

Description

Machine translation has gained an important and indispensable role in the global translation scene. While technology expands in the industry as well as in the lives of ordinary people, mixed feelings are evident, ranging from excitement to anxiety. This pre-conference seminar will create an open space for discussions between all that are involved in translation (industry stakeholders, translators, researchers, students) to think of the technological and human aspects of translation, with a special focus on the development of machine translation and its resultant transformation of the translation industry and practice.
