Introduction | Lost in Translation? What you can expect from this one-day conference

Vincent Godard, CEO - SYSTRAN

Gaëlle Bou, CRO - SYSTRAN

Know more

In recent years, Machine Translation has made a profound impact on our societies and is now part of everyone’s day-to-day activities, dramatically reducing the language barrier. It has also transformed the professional translation market, revolutionizing pricing dynamics and boosting productivity to new heights. Its growing importance in the business world is essential for international expansion strategies for companies. With increasingly advanced and reliable MT solutions, a wider array of use cases can be accommodated, allowing seamless integration into human workflows and ensuring accurate translations of strategic content. 

As Machine Translation engines continue to enhance their accuracy and customization capabilities, large companies dealing with high translation requirements are setting up internal translation capabilities. This strategic move not only enables better cost control, but also provides greater agility, improved compliance, and even more importantly higher data security standards. Moreover, the Cloud has now extended access to secured and customized Machine Translation for small and medium-size enterprises with international ambitions. 

Through this immersive one-day conference, we enthusiastically invite you to join the forefront of this transformative movement, learn about state-of-the-art MT technology, get feed-back from great success stories of SYSTRAN users and ultimately network with your peers
