Conference Program

The GALA Connected 2021 program presents three days of high-quality, thought-provoking presentations from our dynamic lineup of industry experts. We'll tackle a wide variety of topics affecting the language industry in the wake of one of the most disruptive years on record. Through short talks, panel discussions, and interactive KnowledgeFests, we'll come together to discuss the rise of e-learning, new terms for the new world of remote interpreting, multi-modal interfaces for post-editing, and much more. 

GALA would like to thank our Program Committee for their efforts in developing the educational program for GALA Connected 2021.
