Translating and the Computer 2016 (TC38) 17 and 18 November 2016, London, UK Call for Proposals (Deadline extended to July 13th)

So much is happening in the language industry today with new technologies offering innovative ways of focusing on communicating better. On 17 and 18 November 2016, AsLing provides a unique opportunity to have your say at the 38th edition of the annual Translating and the Computer Conference (TC38) in London.

TC38 is a key date in the diary precisely because it draws together “bridge-builders” from many different countries, backgrounds and professions. An annual event where translators, researchers and business people, from translation companies, international organisations, universities and research labs, meet with freelance professionals and tool developers to exchange ideas and discuss latest trends. It offers an excellent occasion to engage with stakeholders from all areas of the translation world.

The conference takes the form of presentations and posters and also features panel discussions and workshops on for example quality procedures, workflow, terminology, interpreting. If you or a colleague have something to contribute, please submit an abstract. See Submission guidelines on the website (http://www.asling.org/tc38/?page_id=40) and submit your proposals for either a paper, poster or workshop using the START system at https://www.softconf.com/g/tc2016/ .

* Translation Memory (TM) systems
