CURRENT ISSUE

2020 was, without a doubt, a marquee year in almost every way possible, not least in terms of the interplay between language and the life sciences. While certain issues were novel, others were perennial; and while certain were unexpected, certain had been predicted years prior in the pages of this very magazine. Join me as we look back on 16 years of MultiLingual and examine the topics of the time, and the relevance they still have today.

Translation Economics of the 2020s

The long-expected technical revolution is here. Automatic translation is no longer just a freebie on the internet. It is now entering the “real” economy of the translation sector, and it changes everything. The fundamental economic laws of intellectual property or of scarcity, for instance, do not apply in a world in which machines autonomously generate an abundance of translated material.

Plunet BusinessManager

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The language industry is too commoditized. Price points are shrinking. Quality and timeliness expectations are getting more stringent. Customers require a language service provider (LSP) with technology-enabled solutions. Sounds familiar, right?

Memsource Translate Innovative MT management in your TMS

Machine translation (MT) quality has dramatically improved over the past few years. Many enterprises and language service providers have turned to MT for faster and more cost-effective translation. MT represents the single most important productivity enhancement for human translators to date. It’s no wonder that since 2020, a majority of projects in Memsource now use machine translation.

Impact of Covid-19 on Japanese Business Culture

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of people from different regions of the globe have had to change their ways of doing business on a daily basis. Although the world may share common obstacles, every country’s workforce must adapt to changes specific to their business culture.

Extended Deadline for EU MDR Implementation Quickly Approaching

When the pandemic hit the world in March 2020, several medical device manufacturers went into rapid production and distribution of diagnostinfluc tests, personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators, and more.

Covid-19 and MDR- Game Changers in Medical Translation

Incidents like the current Covid-19 pandemic, which are considered once-in-a-lifetime events — at least at the time they are happening — are bound to raise debates about what impact they will still have on business, and life in general, once they lie behind us.

Conference Interpreting Businesses under Lockdowns

Covid-19 had a powerful effect on the conference interpretation business. I interviewed three CEOs of conference interpreting businesses to highlight how they adapted to the new game of multilingual online events.

Breaking (Language) Barriers

As vaccination efforts ramp up and COVID-19 cases decline across the United States, it’s worth noting that the pandemic has brought to light significant inequalities in the nation.

Bolingo’s African Country Guides

Whether you are conducting business, are involved in politics, or just visiting a country, it will always work to your advantage to adjust — to the level of your comfort — to the local communication style, be it verbally or African Country Guides will be released one at a time, and we are looking at the first three guides, covering Benin, Burkina Faso, and Ghana.

Transitions in Times of COVID

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” — George Bernard Shaw. The COVID-19 pandemic set off a series of transitions that the language services industry is still grappling with.

The Ever-Changing Regulatory Environment in Finance

In the last two editions of Rules of the Trade, I commented on the role of language service providers (LSPs) in supporting the goals and objectives of the clinical trials industry and the healthcare sector. This time, I will focus on something almost as personal to individuals as their health and wellbeing: their finances.
