The localization space has been redefined: exponentially increasing content, constrained timeframes, gigantic teams, and changing quality expectations have all contributed to create a new localization landscape. Efficiency is key in meeting demand and growing your business. This presentation will look at the power of APIs (application programming interfaces). It will explore the possibilities of APIs in the language services space to get rid of manual processes, interconnect tools that were never meant to work together, and achieve zero e-mail communications in localization workflows. Participants will also discuss what is ready to be used now and fantasize about future APIs to improve productivity and user satisfaction.
