Jeremy Coombs of MultiLing presents on implementing automation strategy for more efficient translations. This webinar discusses the benefits and risks of automation and what translations tasks benefit from automation. It also provides tips on the development of macros and scripts required to make automation possible. Even something as complex as translation work can take advantage of automation to make processes more efficient. Despite the human knowledge required for intricate work such as highly technical and nuanced intellectual property projects, most large, complex tasks we perform are composed of small, repetitive steps. These small tasks don’t require actual human decision-making, and while individually they take little time to complete, the effort adds up. Implementing the proper automation strategy will allow you to forgo the constant repetition of those tasks. This results in cost reduction, predictability of quality, and reduction in the margin for error.
