Five experts answer the big questions about translation technology

Posted by AAC Global news on 21/12/18 06:02

We asked five questions surrounding the big issues in translation technology from five keynote speakers and contributors at this year's Kites symposium. 

The Kites Association is a cluster of Finnish companies working in the fields of multilingual communication and language technology.  Their annual symposium brings together the leading translation and localization companies in Finland, along with customers, guest speakers, stakeholders and influencers from both the public and private sectors.

For those of us inside the language service provider (LSP) industry, it is awash with buzz words at the moment: from neural machine translation to automatic translation, and from eTranslation to big data and open data.

How will these technologies develop, and what will that mean for the translation and localization services that LSPs offer to translation and localization clients?

Customer insight: Scenario-based elearning at Kemira

Posted by AAC Global news on 16/10/18 06:03

Kemira is a chemical industry group that consists of three main segments: pulp & paper, municipal & industrial, and oil & mining

With their code of conduct, Kemira wanted to both engage their employees and also maximize the learning outcome by enabling their employees to understand the connection between the principles of the code and their work within the company.

We developed an eLearning course in conjunction with Kemira that uses scenarios to achieve both those aims.

 


“We wanted to make an eLearning course that would be fresh and different from our previous version, covering real-life scenarios for ethical decision-making.”
