Workshop – What will the language professional of tomorrow do?

A Translating Europe Workshop is to be held on Thursday of this week – on 9 February 2023, from 15:00 – 17:00 CET. Organised by the Netherlands, it will take place online.

The workshop description reads “Language technology plays an increasingly important role in the multilingual European societies we live in, a development that affects the entire language sector. Will the language specialist therefore be replaced by the data scientist or will expert knowledge of languages stay a key competence on the job market?”

“In cooperation with Drongo, the translation service of the European Commission is organizing a panel discussion between trainers, students, companies, researchers and language professionals about the job market for language experts. The discussion will take place on the occasion of our publication of OTTO: an inventory of training programmes in the field of language and technology in the Netherlands and Belgium.”
