Translation Professionals Conference in Miami by SDL: ITC Takes Part

03/13/12

On Tuesday February 28, the ITC Global Translation Project Manager, Marine Gandit, took part in a translation professionals conference held by SDL, the world leader in global information management.

The aim of this conference was to teach new tool-mediated work options and encourage translators to use the new Studio 2011 software.

The conference was attended by an array of operators from the translation sector, including translations companies, freelance translators and SDL speakers. This was an opportunity to network, see presentations of new software and get briefings on a host of tool-mediated options. A mid-day meal was served to facilitate discussions.

Two off-shoots of the software were also presented: SDL Trados Studio GroupShare collaborative tool and SDL Passolo 2011. The main goal of the day was to encourage translation professionals to use Studio 2011 instead of Trados. This new software is more comprehensive and saves a significant amount of time both for the translation company and translators.
