|USER CONFERENCE 2010|
Join us in Portland to take the pulse on the future of translation
There are 20 speakers for the preliminary program at the TAUS User Conference 2010, 3-6 October, Portland (OR, USA), a non-sponsored, high-value networking event dedicated to innovation, collaboration and automation in the translation industry.
The TAUS community is the most influential advocate for interoperable translation technology, better machine translation, massive language date sharing for the benefit of all, and greater strategic impact from translation globally. These talks cover the latest developments in open translation platforms, the agenda for scientific discovery, and a series of presentations looking at the most significant technology, best practices and uses cases for machine translation.
I am very happy to now inform you of two very special sessions:
SDL has followed a highly successful strategy outlined to TAUS in 2005. Welocalize is the most significant translation firm to take an open source approach. At the TAUS User Conference SDL's CTO, Keith Mills, and Welocalize's CEO, Smith Yewell, share their take on open platforms, industry collaboration, and the unfolding innovation agenda.
In a rare talk from the government and intelligence focused BBN Technologies, Premkumar Natarajan will share with participants BBN's work, technology, and offerings in spoken language translation, as well as multilingual media monitoring and tracking.
A landmark pilot is underway at a national US healthcare organization to provide automatic speech-to-speech translation to enable wide-ranging healthcare conversations between English and Spanish speakers. Dr. Mark Seligman will provide a demo of Spoken Translation Inc's Converser for Healthcare, as well as discuss issues and prospects for speech translation with a focus on upcoming mobile applications.
