About this Event
Mix and mingle with localization managers, engineers, and translators from local software companies, non-profits, multi-level marketing firms, LSPs, educational institutions, and other organizations.
This event is jointly organized by Silicon Slopes Localization, Women in Localization Utah Chapter, and the Utah Translators & Interpreters Association.
Presentation: How Machine Translation is Transforming the Future
Ray Hopley, Director of Product Management at SDL, will be speaking about the history of machine translation (MT), consumer and enterprise use cases, and future MT trends. Ray will highlight MT’s impact on “traditional” localization as well as the different forms of machine translation. He will also give his insights on what’s next in MT. This presentation will focus on MT in general and not on one industry-specific tool.

#1 Event Rule: No Selling
This event is adopting an increasingly popular rule for localization mixers and events: no selling. We want everyone to feel comfortable here. This does not prevent you from exchanging business cards or telling people about your company when you are asked, but we want to keep this far from the killing grounds where aggressive salespeople scare away everyone else. Seriously.
When you have a chance, please thank SDL and the Translation Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for hosting and sponsoring this event and bonus training workshop.
