W.L. UK Event - Linguistic Quality Management

Tuesday, 14 May, 2019 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM


50 Finsbury Square
United Kingdom

Data driven processes can greatly aid business decisions for quality management.

Utilising a Linguistic Quality Assurance (LQA) model can be great in tracking quality, though it can also be time consuming, and brings up many questions. How should it be performed and what are the ways in which this can be managed?

Our speakers will share their knowledge on different strategies to measure quality, in terms of correctness, accuracy and consistency. We will also explore different LQA processes, frameworks, error categorization models, linguistic quality control tools, and differences in linguistic quality management between human translation and machine translation.

Join the next W.L. UK event, in which we will explore quality management from different perspectives. Whatever your stance - you’ll have the opportunity to put your questions to the panel!
