New technologies are facilitating the creation and dissemination of new forms of content. In a world where multilingualism is becoming the norm, these changes raise new challenges for media producers, distributors, consumers and translators. Simultaneously, advances in ICT continually bring innovative translation tools and services to the market. As the flow of content increases, so does the demand for translation in the form of dubbing, subtitling, voiceover, subtitling for the deaf and audio description. Technology has come to play an important part when trying to catch up with these changes.

In recent years, developments in machine translation, cloud storage, digital television and voice recognition, amongst others, have not only had widereaching ramifications for the media and translation sectors, but have also gone mainstream, with users across the world having easy access to sophisticated technologies and expecting instantaneous results.

Are these smart technologies leading to smart translations?

The 10th Languages & The Media conference will bring together researchers, language practitioners, translators, interpreters, software developers and all those who produce, market, or distribute audiovisual materials for information, entertainment or educational purposes to discuss these pressing questions.

Join us if you would like to voice your opinion and take part in the discussion.
