What will the future of language services industry look like and how will the services develop in the near future? What tools will be available for companies that are going global?

Kites Symposium 2013 is an important event in the language industry – it is the meeting point for both customers and language service providers. Come and listen to fascinating talks, network with other participants and discuss the future of the business.    

The overall theme of Kites Symposium 2013 is the future of language industry, and we try to bring you insights into how the near future will look like for both customers and language service providers. After the morning session and the key note speakers there will be two different tracks, one of which will concentrate on the changing markets. In the other we will discuss the development and implementation of language technology.

There is a limited amount of stands for companies available in the main exhibition area. We offer two different partner levels for companies that want more visibility.

The following themes will be discussed at our symposium:

- text analysis as a base of decision-making

- big data and its impact in doing business

- making use of speech technology in business

- new services in language industry

- how machine translation and post-editing will change the services; what kind of text is it suitable for and now much costs can you cut?
