Many content sources, real-time translation, tight deadlines, cost pressure, quality problems, missing key figures and control options – are you also facing these challenges and want to become fit for the future?
Our Smart Translation Factory concept is a solution!

Trends and challenges in managing multilingual communication

Current trends such as Internet of Things result in a growing number of devices now requiring graphical, visual or audio interfaces. In the past, those devices did not require a user interface or communication function at all. But such trends not only result in an increasing communication between man and machine, but also in an increasing communication volume caused by personalized content. As a result, the need for real-time translation is increasing continuously and traditional translation workflows are no longer sufficient – other solutions and services are required.

Content disruption

Increasing number of content sources and formats

Machine translation

Quality? Possible applications?


How to define? How to measure? 


What kind of data to collect? What can machines learn from?

Key figures

Which key figures to measure? ROI?


Cloud? Developing? Purchasing?


Which skills do stakeholders need to have?

Data protection
