Integration efforts that streamline translation are being driven by your clients. Even small and medium sized enterprises are automating the delivery of content from their CMSs right to your door. Are you ready? What are the technical requirements? Risks? Benefits? How can you get ahead of the curve and gain an advantage by being “in the know” about translation integration? If the big MLVs are already doing this – can you do it too? This session will examine how integration works, how it’s helpful, what clients are demanding and how you can be ready when that client calls and says, “Let’s integrate!”
