Slator makes business sense of the translation and language technology markets through news and insights on demand drivers, funding, talent moves, technology and more. Our platforms include the Slator.com website, the SlatorCon conference series, and bespoke events created to foster high-impact discussions with the industry’s key decision-makers. Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, Slator also has a presence in Singapore, Bangkok, Manila, and London.
The translation, language technology, and document outsourcing markets are large, complex, and fast changing. From transcreation to crowdsourcing and machine translation. From workflow and productivity tools to website translation proxies and SaaS. From global marketing content to technical documentation. The markets for converting content from one language to another are fascinating. And they are growing rapidly. We decipher this highly fragmented sector where companies merge, acquire competitors, and develop new technologies. We break news and provide insight on the latest private equity and venture capital investments. We cover startup launches, funding, technology disruption, and talent moves. Slator’s mission is to help our audience make business sense out of this rapid change.
Slator publishes short-cycle news, in-depth analysis, and feature articles. We host webinars and video interviews. Our editorial team writes original content and curates relevant articles carefully selected from a network of global subject matter experts from the client and vendor side as well as academia.
Slator publishes research reports about the major drivers of the language industry as well as the Slator Language Service Provider Index LSPI. Slator also offers bespoke research.
Slator allows readers to subscribe to a notification service of relevant requests for proposals (RFP) and tenders issued by public and private organizations from across the globe. Offering substantial value, these opportunities present vendors with an exciting avenue to accelerate growth.
Slator includes a comprehensive directory of individually vetted and approved organisations. Listing in the directory is a paid service available to all organisations that operate in translation, language technology, and document outsourcing industries as well as academia. Once approved, our online clients can also publish their own jobs, events, research, and news, which can be accessed by our expansive online community.
