No one in the translation industry has a crystal ball. Not even the hosts of Globally Speaking. So what did they miss, I hear you ask?
When Renato Beninatto and Michael Stevens gave their top predictions for “What’s in Store for the Translation Industry in 2017” in our December 7 podcast, they highlighted:
- The growing importance of neural MT and machine learning
- The increasing need for translation services for virtual and augmented reality applications
- Increasing demand for localization services in Asian markets, primarily China and India.
But a few of the nearly 1,000 people who listened to the 2017 forecast segment commented on significant trends that weren’t discussed. In this episode, the hosts review the listener feedback and discuss additional trends that weren’t covered in the December segment.
Additional trends include:
- The ongoing growth in video interpretation
- Increasing demand for remote app-based interpretation
- The rise of “interpretainment”
- The emergence of predictive MT
- Incremental innovations that are becoming the norm
