I. SNEAK PEEK: NEXT ISSUE OF MultiLingual

Subscribe now with our special offer to MultiLingual News readers. All subscribers have full access to our digital archive going back to 2007.

I.1. The automated interpreter by Hassan Sawaf & Jonathan Litchman

Automatic speech recognition (ASR) has been advancing rapidly, hitting the consumer market at full force and making a case for being the hottest technology of 2011 and possibly 2012. Today, the most sophisticated consumer and enterprise machine translation engines have fully integrated ASR technology for speech-to-speech and speech-to-text translation capabilities.

I.2. Ten essential steps to TMS selection for LSPs by Benjamin B. Sargent & Vijayalaxmi Hegde

What distinguishes a service provider as being 'technology-savvy' is not the style or where it sits on the adoption continuum, but rather how closely its adoption style matches the business strategy of the company, and by extension the interests and proclivities of its owners or operators. TMS selection by LSPs should start with a frank assessment of the organization's technology adoption style based on the tech-savvy typology.

I.3. Localizing worldwide mobile apps by Talia Baruch

Mobile web traffic is already surpassing PC-based traffic. According to ABI Research, by 2015, mobile commerce will have reached $119 billion worth of goods and services purchased via mobile phone.... Therefore, when we examine pipeline paths for the localization industry, it is the mobile vertical that waves frantically for our attention.
