Language – Key to Global Success

By: GALA Team, Information

A New Forum Highlighting the Importance of Language in the Chinese Market and Beyond

On May 29, 2014, GALA is partnering with the Translators Association of China (TAC) to produce a unique new forum in Beijing. The Forum, called Language – Key to Global Success, was selected to be one of a very few “high-value forums” of the China Beijing International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTIS), the world’s only trade fair covering 12 categories of service trade.

The Forum features in-depth sessions that will help companies forge new partnerships for multilingual access, learn about best practices with industry leaders and key players, understand the latest data and trends in the industry – in the East and West – and discover key language services and technologies for global success.

All stakeholders of the language services industry are welcome and encouraged to participate in this important conversation around the Chinese market for language services, interpreting, and language technology. Attendees will include Chinese and international global content managers, localization managers, program managers, marketing managers, suppliers of translation and localization services, language technology developers, business consultancies, language training institutions, and many others.

All are invited to attend and share their insights the Chinese and global markets for the language industry.

In addition to in-depth sessions and an extensive exhibit hall, CIFTIS will also offer a unique Business Matching System (CBMS) and free rooms for booking on-site business meetings. Once registered for the CBMS, company representatives can publish profiles in the system, see all other registered companies in all industries, send proposals to other registered companies for business meetings, respond to invitations, and hold on-site meetings. The CBMS will be a great way for Chinese and international companies to meet and get to know each other.

Registered Forum attendees will also have the opportunity to attend the whole range of CIFTIS industry events and exhibitions from May 28 to June 1, 2014. (For a complete list of the activities of the 2nd CIFTIS event, held on May 28 last year, please visit http://www.ciftis.org/en/activities/Schedule/)


The Forum Language – Key To Global Success is organized by the Translators Association of China (TAC) in collaboration with GALA, Localization World, and Rockant Education and Consulting, with the support of a number of industry associations and global companies.
