W.L. UK Event – Machine Translation: Powered by Women

October 10, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

W.L. UK Northern event – MT: Powered by women

About this Event

Machine Translation (MT) usage is rapidly growing, with technologies introducing new ways of working providing new tools and challenges for modern linguists. Discover how women from academia, translation, software companies and other fields power machine translation.

Women in Localization UK is hosting its second MT-focused event, its first-ever event in the North. This event will bring some of the best female MT talent from the North into Manchester, a city thriving through technological innovation. Our speakers will take over the iconic Manchester Chamber of Commerce to share their knowledge and their experiences with the attendees.

Speaking of attendees… Did you know men can (and do) attend our events? Women in Localization welcomes everyone who supports our mission: To Foster A Global Community for the Advancement of Women and the Localization Industry. So don’t miss it!
