I've seen a few posts recently discussing cloud technology and also some interesting views... at opposite ends of the spectrum... on how well cloud technology will be received by translators. So I thought you may be interested in some online events being run through ProZ to discuss cloud technology and how our industry can adapt to make use of it.
The webinars are about the technology and are not an SDL sales pitch, so if you're interested in learning what the cloud is all about and where our industry fits in you might find them useful. There are three scheduled events coming up, only for 30 minutes.
