The annual Global Ready Conference is just around the corner! GRC 2022 is the translation and localization industry’s leading virtual event that you do not want to miss.
Why? The conference is an interactive virtual event designed to help you expand your network, meet with our team and other industry experts, increase your localization knowledge, and get tips and tricks to get the most out of your localization strategy and investments.
The day will be packed with exciting keynotes and entertainment, insightful panel interviews, and deep-dive sessions that will give you the tools you need to begin reaching global audiences at scale. Check out the full agenda here.
If that’s not convincing enough, let us take you through these five reasons why you should attend Global Ready Conference on April 12th.
Reason 1: Master Your Understanding of Machine Translation
Machine translation, when used strategically, can benefit global brands in incredible ways. In fact, the majority of Smartling customers have listed using MT as a priority for 2022. However, it can be challenging to know where to start and how best to use MT to your advantage. There are questions around quality, training, cost, and more.
One of the key themes at Global Ready Conference this year is machine translation. A live session, “Curious About MT: The Who, What, Where, When, Why,” and a dedicated breakout room following will address what MT is, how exactly it works, its pros and cons, and which content types are best for machine translation. Additionally, you’ll learn how machine learning, a subset of machine translation, can be used to improve the efficiency and cost of professional translation.
Reason 2: Find Out How Smartling Makes Localization Managers' Lives Better
One session you want to pay attention to is the Product Roadmap. During this time, we’ll be reviewing current trends we see, what our customers want, the upcoming product roadmap, and what we’re doing to make localization managers’ lives easier. Here are Smartling’s main 2022 product themes. Be there to learn more about what these are all about!
- Improve the life of the localization manager (both customer and vendor)
- Build and support innovative methods of translation fulfillment
- Improve the new user journey, frictionless get-started
- Support and improve methods of content capture
- Reporting & Analytics
Reason 3: Learn Localization Strategy Best Practices
There’s always something to learn from one another. We packed the conference with insights, best practices, and practical tips from your peers, other Smartling customers, and localization experts.
Centralization of localization and translation processes have been the cornerstone of many of our customers’ success. We’ve invited a few of them to share with you their secret sauce to global success (a.k.a. improving translation quality, reducing time to market, and saving hundreds of thousands of dollars).
Make sure to join us to catch leading global brands such as Coinbase, Monese, GoFundMe, Lightricks, Goldcast, and Lacework share how they are successfully translating at scale and meeting their global customers wherever they are.
Reason 4: Meet the (Very) Special Guest Keynote Speaker
We are thrilled to welcome an extraordinary guest to this year’s Global Ready Conference. An award-winning author, activist, and one of the BBC’s most inspirational women, Elif Shafak.
Shafak is an inspiring public speaker, twice a TED Global speaker, named by Politico as someone “who will give you a much-needed lift of the heart,” and an author whose works have been translated into 55 languages. This is sure to be a keynote you won’t want to miss!
Reason 5: Make New Friends
Gone are the days of networking events where you awkwardly stand not knowing what to do or whom to talk with!
We have created 12 curated networking rooms within the Networking Track open at various times throughout the day. Each room highlights a topic of interest where you can interact with your peers and Smartling team members (including our CEO and leadership team!).
Join live, so you don’t miss your chance to have a follow-up discussion from a session you attended, ask the experts question, and broaden your network of industry contacts. Pop over to the Attendees tab to see who else is there on the day and connect directly with the 1-1 messaging feature.
