In fact, almost every week we hear of new tools or solutions that promise to improve translations in many ways.

In a recent NPR news piece Uber Plans To Kill Surge Pricing, Though Drivers Say It Makes Job Worth It, Jeff Schneider, engineering lead at Uber describes how they are using machine learning to hack the problem of supply and demand.

Concretely, that means that when some event causes lots of people to need transportation at the same time in generally the same location, the Uber fare will automatically increase. This increase incentivizes...

The question is: are we all on the same evolutionary path? Or do some of us take different turns, make shortcuts and even arrive in different places? The TAUS Executive Forum on April 25 and 26 in Beijing opened new perspectives on translation in China that many of us had perhaps not expected. China typically copies what others have already built and done before them. Fast trains are modeled to the TGV in France, electric cars are inspired by Tesla, and fashion in China follows the trends around the world closely. So when Eric Liu of LocaTran Translations at the TAUS...
