LexiQA, Modelfront, Content Quo. Customer and submitter portals, vendor portals, CMS connectors, order forms. Emails. SOAP APIs, REST APIs, web scraping, traffic capturing. Quotations, file preparation, updates. Full automation, script-based automation. People in our industry easily get daunted by all these technologies, and remain paralyzed in a world where automation is a top differentiator.

This presentation aims to define all the above concepts relating to automation in the translation industry and clear up the fog, and we will also give a practical step-by-step guide on getting started with automation. While we will get a little technical, the webinar is also suitable for non-technical participants with a couple of years of experience in the translation industry.

Target group

  • C-level executives
  • Production/localization managers
  • Technical staff at LSPs and
  • Enterprises interested in getting started with automation.


  1. Automation starts at understanding and modelling what you are doing.
  2. Automation is not a one-off project, it’s a continuous process of co-creation based on communication.
  3. The key to automation is attention to details, and openness to change for the improvement of the company, rather than individuals’ work.
