Forecast 2018: What’s Ahead for the Language Industry [Podcast]

This past year has been one of huge changes in the language industry. The aggressive expansion of Neural Machine Translation. The continuing rise of remote interpretation. The increasing importance of long-tail languages. The unprecedented advancements in artificial intelligence (AI).

And, of course, countless more changes that impacted our industry in 2017.

But what about the year that lies ahead? Will 2018 be as dynamic as this past year, or will there be an even greater paradigm shift?
