  • (1888PressRelease) April 20, 2011 - This year, the conference was hosted in Cracow and gathered representatives of translation agencies and technology companies spanning 21 countries from Europe and North America, among them France, Germany, Spain, the USA, Canada, Great Britain, Poland, Russia, Latvia, and Belarus.

    TMS Inspiration Days agenda was designed to ensure that visitors receive both useful and inspiring information related to the market of translation services. Among the areas of focus was the issue of Machine Translation tools and their corporate-level use. That area was discussed by Rebecca Ray with her presentation on Latest Trends in Machine Translation, and Renato Beninatto with his lecture on Machine Translation - Practical Application Experience. The top trends topic was expanded by Renatto Beninatto with his lecture on Translation Market Evolution that touched on the future of the translation industry. Another discussion session was dedicated to the issues of corporate strategy and development, including lectures by Roy Allkin (LSP - Business growth path), Anne-Marie Colliander Lind (Building sales department), Arturo Quintero (Mistakes to avoid when growing your business), Bob Donaldson (7 things vendors would never tell you about), and Rebecca Ray (Success factors for LSPs). The technology part of the conference featured demonstrations on the XTRF, XML, and MultiQA systems, further supplemented with dedicated workshops.

    Besides for high levels of information, expertise, and inspiration, visitors could also benefit from networking opportunities to establish new, and strengthen existing, business relations. In anticipation of the conference, a special online catalogue was launched containing descriptions of the companies attending TMS Inspiration Days, while during the conference a special networking-dedicated session took place. The visitors were divided into small teams to facilitate the process of getting acquainted and presenting their company to the team members. Knowledge transfer was made easy also thanks to two other events that accompanied the conference - the Wednesday networking reception in Kawaleria, a traditional Polish restaurant, and the Thursday official dinner at Hotel Stary.

    TMS Inspiration Days was hosted by XTRF Management Systems Ltd. and LIDO-LANG, the technical translations agency. This year's edition was sponsored by XTM International, ITI (MultiQA producer), and LNE International. The media side was arranged by Multilingual.
