What is MT? Who are the current users? Where are we going with future jobs?

Machine Translation (MT) technology is rapidly developing, becoming a hot topic within the industry. As technology improves, is MT right for all? Some would never consider it, whereas others see the future possibilities. What’s your stance on the matter?

Don’t miss the next WLUK event in London, in which we will explore MT from different perspectives, from a technology provider, LSP, and academic. Whether you love or hate MT, you’ll have the opportunity to put your questions to the panel!
