Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and the Future-Proofed Translator
I was fortunate enough to be one of the 130 participants of the TAUS Global Content Conference in June of 2019, (and the only freelance translator). The two days that followed were full of networking, knowledge sharing, and inspirational speeches. TAUS Global Content Conference focuses on big questions such as how far machine translation (MT) has come, whether human parity is possible, how machine learning (ML) will impact global communication, and of course, what the rise of technology means for freelance translators.
What follows is my summary of the event and how what I learned can affect translators around the world. For more information, click here to read the footnotes for 2019’s TAUS Global Content Conference.
