The tension between human translators and MT engines has increased in recent years, with each side trying to prove their superiority over the other. Human translators increasingly take to social media to vent their fears, frustrations, and assertions that human translation is better and always the answer to any client's translation needs, while scrappy MT startups tout the speed and ease with which they can solve any translation problem with opaque and complex algorithms. This leads to conflict and fighting over jobs as neither player really understands the role of the others in the industry. Mary will draw on her decade of experience as a freelancer working with large LSPs and individual clients and her experience as a project manager in the MT and human translation areas to build a better picture of the worldwide translation industry. Participants will work together to brainstorm steps they can take to protect their careers and expand the services they offer in order to work with, not against, MT.
Recorded date: November 10th, 2022, 6 p.m. - 7 p.m. PST
Viewing period: available until May 11th, 2023
