Trends in Translation

Five years ago the pace of change within the translation industry seemed fast and confusing. Since then it has just got faster. This presentation will examine the trends within our industry and present a model to better understand where we are now. The speaker will try to help make sense of the changes and start a discussion on what the future might hold for us, our business and our technology.
