Learn the pros and cons of the top language localization tools to discover which one best fits your needs and goals!

Smartling is a cloud-based translation management system with streamlined project management features. But is it the right tool for you?

Attend our third quarterly ATA TEKTalks webinar for an interview with Smartling’s Localization Program Manager Christopher Wyant. Freelance translators, in-house linguists, company owners, and students will learn how the program connects businesses, translation companies, and translators to deliver multilingual content across all of a client’s devices and platforms. The presenter will also explain the company’s approach to simplifying the localization process and streamlining translation projects to optimize time, energy, and cost.

What is ATA TEKTalks?

Language technology, or lang tech for short, can feel like a confusing maze, evolving daily. If you’ve ever felt “LOC’d out” of all the excitement—or just overwhelmed—it’s time to grab your compass and assume your place as a tech-savvy linguist!

ATA’s Language Technology Division is pleased to announce TEKTalks, a new quarterly series of webinars. ATA TEKTalks will provide a platform for leading language technology companies to say hello, offer insights, and answer prepared questions relevant to the work of freelancers, language services providers, and in-house translation departments.

Think of ATA TEKTalks as an open exchange of information where language technology companies and their representatives demonstrate how and why their services can improve your return on investment.

This webinar series is organized in collaboration with ATA’s Language Technology Division.

You will learn how to:

  • Understand the pros and cons of leading language localization tools and platforms
  • Identify the questions to ask when looking for the lang tech that will work best for you
  • Decide which component, tool, integration, or brand may be ideal for your needs
  • Find new opportunities to put your language skills to use in ways you have never considered
