The European Union’s Directorate-General Translation hosted a forum last October for the EU language industry to discuss the sector’s added value and best practices. Its title was ‘Joining forces for a stronger language industry’.
The event brought together language-industry stakeholders (service providers, companies of all sizes that require or buy language services, associations of professionals, etc.).
Videos have now been made available online, so all those who were unable to attend the workshops in person can now listen to the discussions in the comfort of their own computer!
As the forum was held in parallel with the Translation Studies Day, participants were able to meet and exchange views with major players from the language industry and academia.
“Going Global through Language Services” — industry best practice, professional development, role of language service providers.
“Employability and Language Services – Preparing for the Future” — jobs in the language industry, future prospects for language professionals in government and business.
To access the videos click here. Mac users note that for me, the videos don’t seem to work in Safari, but Firefox was fine. As well as English, versions in German, French, and Spanish are available.
Please note that conclusions from the LIND-Web Forum will go online early in the New Year.
