The Case for Connectivity: TAPICC Standards Initiative
There is currently no unified, standard API for the translation industry, yet true digital transformation will only happen when companies can connect their workflows directly to the market. Join GALA, TAUS, and LT-Innovate in a community initiative to establish translation API standards. TAPICC seeks to create a basic subset of API use cases and classes to become a reliable and stable, interoperable “middleware” between tool providers, end clients, and LSPs. This will be a working session to share the latest developments on the project, intended goals, and the deliverables that will help industry companies. Questions, participation, and feedback are welcomed and encouraged.
