Welocalize Discusses Quality, Innovation and Strategy at 2014 TAUS Events in Dublin

FREDERICK, MD--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - Welocalize, global leader in innovative translation and localization solutions, will share industry insight and expertise at TAUS Industry Leaders Forum and TAUS Quality Evaluation (QE) Summit taking place in Dublin, June 2-4, 2014. 

Esteemed members of Welocalize leadership team will participate in panel discussions related to industry challenges, opportunities and innovative strategies at the TAUS Industry Leaders Forum, June 2-3 at the Clontarf Hotel in Dublin. Welocalize CEO and TAUS Advisory Board Member, Smith Yewell, is a featured panelist for "Translation Quality: It's Time That We Agree" and Olga Beregovaya will engage as a panelist on the topic of "Enterprise Language Strategy."

The TAUS Industry Leaders Forum is an opportunity to collaborate with business leaders from global corporations and industry experts who are committed to innovation and advancing language services and technology.

Welocalize's Olga Beregovaya and Lena Marg will deliver a joint presentation which focuses on quality related to user-generated content (UGC) at the annual TAUS Quality Evaluation (QE) Summit, on Wednesday, June 4. The presentation, "Getting the Right UGC Quality: Professional or Crowd, Human or Machine" takes place at 10:15am on Wednesday, June 4 at the Conference Centre Dublin. The summit is hosted by the 2014 Localization World conference. Lena Marg will also chair the breakout session "Crowdsourcing" taking place later the same day.

"The old static quality standards are now definitely giving way to understanding that the very notion of the translation quality has become more of a moving target with multiple variables at play," said Olga Beregovaya, VP of language tools and automation at Welocalize. "In our presentation at the summit, we will discuss quality, specifically in the context of user-generated content. Translating UGC is now an integral part of any global communications strategy and traditional quality requirements for translated UGC are less relevant. It is all about impact."

The TAUS QE Summit is a full day of presentations and breakout discussions centered on topics including quality estimation, crowdsourcing, readability and usability evaluation and sampling of quality evaluations.
