TAUS, the translation industry think tank, has announced the winners of its annual awards for innovation in Seattle. And the prize for the winning “Insider” went to… Lingo24!
The award was voted by attendees at their annual User Conference, which brings together leaders in the translation, localisation, and technology industries from around the world. This year’s theme was Agents of Change: Striving to be the Best.
Christian Arno, Lingo24’s MD, gave a presentation introducing Coach, our new translation technology platform. It’s designed to increase the productivity of the best professional translators, and automate time-consuming parts of the process without sacrificing quality.
There were some other fascinating talks on the evolution of the user experience, a debate on a Human Language Project, and “lightening” translation technology pitches.
We were delighted when the audience chose Lingo24 for one of the two Excellence Awards at the ceremony on Tuesday! The award for best “invader” – or industry newcomer – was given to Jack Welde, of Smartling, who spoke about their solution to translation/localisation for Web 2.0.
Christian said: “We’re delighted to achieve this recognition from TAUS. There were some excellent presentations, so I’m sure this was a difficult decision! I’d like to say a big thank you and well done to all the team who have been working on this project.”
The annual conference explores some of the biggest issues facing the translation industry. With technology changing fast, it’s vital that companies adapt and meet the demands of users in a global economy. TAUS’s aim is to “help the world communicate better” through innovative software and strategies.
