Speaking at the Gala Conference in Munich

Language // English

In March I will be attending my first Gala Conference in Munich. This will be a very exciting experience for me. Besides having the opportunity to meet some inspiring people who work in the translation industry, I will be taking part in two events to talk about my experience as a translator and post-editor.


Machine Translation Post Editing: How to Make it a Win-Win Situation

When it comes to machine translation, LSPs and freelancers often have different perceptions, expectations and requirements. While the LSP may struggle to find post-editors with the right attitude when formulating an effective price model, freelancers could consider post-editing merely as a second-best solution, rather than an opportunity to take advantage owing to current technological developments.

Together with my inspiring co-speaker Diego Cresceri, founder and CEO of the Italian agency Creative Words, we will chat about different aspects of the post-editing process and explain what it takes to make it a worthwhile activity for everyone involved.

Transforming Talent: The Modern Linguist

During this interactive panel hosted by Welocalize, I will discuss the changing role of the modern linguist and how to remain competitive in the rapidly changing translation industry with fellow panellists Karin Dunn (Park IP Translations), Katerina Gasova (RWS Moravia) and Sabrina Girletti (University of Geneva). What skills and specialisations are required? How can educational institutions prepare the next generation of linguists? What role will MT play?
