The Directorate-General for Translation of the European Commission organizes its yearly Translating Europe Forum to gather translation stakeholders, discuss topics of common interest and stimulate cooperation.

The focus this year will be on Translation in the age of data: Translators working with data – data working for translators.

    • Data are becoming more and more important, but what kind of data? How can translators benefit from the data they produce?
    • How will artificial intelligence affect the language industry and individual translators?
    • How is neural machine translation changing the translation profession?
    • What is the EU doing? What about sharing translation data – what are the legal and practical aspects?

      We will discuss all this (and more) with experts from the private sector, academia, public services, educators as well as young and experienced professionals.

Keynote speeches by:

Nozha BOUJEMAA, Research Director at Inria, member of the Commission's High-level group on AI (artificial intelligence)

Karim BENAMMAR, philosopher specialising in transformative thinking
