I’ll review the challenges and opportunities of working in the cloud while on the go for us as translators. I’ll give examples of risks and opportunities for LSPs and Freelancers alike. Finally, I’ll give you tips on how to improve your security when using mobile devices on the go and also for working in the cloud from your (home) office, or from anywhere else. Finally, I’ll cover different scenarios for the future of collaborative work for translators... The Q/A session will be of utmost importance because this is when you can explain your difficulties and we will find solutions for you together.
