A Cure without a Disease? Sustainability in Interpreting Technology Solutions

Monday, 27 March, 2017 - 14:45

Interpreting has become the next frontier of innovation in the language services sector with new interpreting delivery platforms and interpreting management systems appearing all the time. Many solutions have only a handful of clients or regular accounts, if any at all. 

In this session, we’ll cover the various technology types and dissect the challenges to sell such solutions. Developers and service providers must address core problems – or the interpreting technology market will develop slowly, remain fragmented, and won’t exhibit clear leaders for quite some time. This session is based on Common Sense Advisory’s in-depth research on the interpreting sector.

This session will be delivered and interpreted remotely using Interprefy's platform and a Cadence interpreter.
