The translation technology landscape is continually evolving, and it’s quite impressive to see just how many tools are out there right now. Yet, given the sheer number of available platforms, it can be quite daunting and confusing to shop for a solution, and you may be worrying whether you have to spend a fortune to get what you need. The good news is that with a wide variety of tools, comes a wide variety of options — for all budget levels.
It’s already been six years now since Google revealed that Google Translate processes 146 billion words a day — three times more than what all the professional translators in the world combined can do in a month. That was 2016 and things haven’t really slowed down in the machine translation (MT) universe since.
The language industry is rapidly evolving and you don’t want to miss out on the latest developments. Nimdzi has created a list of more than 60 influencers in the Localization industry based on a variety of criteria and active engagement on social media. The candidates included in the ranking are all professionals with proven experience in translation, localization, and globalization.
