AI Use Cases in Localization
Modern AI tools, when properly used in synergy with humans, offer numerous opportunities to deliver high quality in localization, as well as support for large scale actions. In his job as the Director of AI at Translated Sébastien Bratières worked on several such projects. He is going to describe some of these, and offer reflections on two aspects localization teams will be faced with when approaching AI solutions:
- What professional profile and AI skills areneeded?
- From among the many offerings, in what modality do we access AI solutions?
Sébastien speaks about specific applications of machine translation, toponyms translation and transliteration, localization analytics, language tagging.
