The TAUS Annual Conference in Silicon Valley opened with a panel discussion about innovation led by Paula Shannon (Lionbridge) who skillfully introduced the concept of sustainable, disruptive and devastating innovation for her panel to discuss. Companies such as Airbnb and Uber were cited as examples of disruptive innovation and with the imminent TAUS Innovation Excellence Award to be given out, there was the distinct feeling that something new was about to happen. The tagline of the TAUS Annual Conference read — WANTED! Innovators for the Translation Industry — and participants were on the lookout for the next big innovator from inside...

Jaap van der Meer meets Women In Localization at the Holiday Inn Camden Hotel in London on November 26th, 2015 The world can be overwhelming, so it’s tempting to try to make it smaller, more controllable.

I don’t want to make this a political debate, but I think we, localization professionals, know best that we cannot establish borders and keep them closed. The world is one.

On the 12th and 13th October we held our TAUS Annual Conference in San Jose, California. A record number of people attended - 135 - and we introduced a (perhaps) new tradition of TAUS Haus musicians. The theme of this year’s conference was innovation. In order to progress our industry we need innovators. Not just from inside our industry (we call them insiders), but also from outside of the translation industry (the invaders). So on the program this year was a true Innovation Contest. We invited all innovators to submit a proposal for this contest and out of the submissions we picked...
