The highly diverse and fragmented translation industry is facing yet a new trend: the Marketplace Model. This concept enables direct interaction between translators and buyers of their services using translation automation technology as a foundation. This webinar from ABBYY COO Jean-Luc Saillard addresses two issues: Implications of a Marketplace concept for the modern LSP-focused translation industry, and what set of technologies is essential to making this new business model tick. Pros and cons of the Marketplace approach will be discussed through various case studies.
Jean-Luc has over 20 years of management experience in the translation business having founded his own company before joining ABBYY Language Services. His passion for technology has led him to be an early adopter of translation tools from the DOS based TM tools to the latest workflow and MT applications. He now also acts as an ideologist for SmartCAT - cloud-based platform for translation automation.
