London, February 1, 2023 – XTM Live, the flagship event of enterprise-TMS provider XTM International, has confirmed its first set speakers for its 2023 edition, which will be taking place in London (UK) on April 19-20 and will be focusing on how to drive global growth through language technology. XTM also announced that the second day of the event will have a brand-new format this year, as it will combine its usual language-technology training sessions with customer presentations and panel discussions addressing some of the hottest product technology topics in the localization industry today.
Keynote on the first day of the event will be Bruno Herrmann, executive advisor and consultant in global-content operations, who will be speaking about how to leverage technology to create value and drive growth. Fei Liu, Localization Manager at RS Group; and Josef Kubovský, CEO at Nimdzi Insights will take part in a panel discussion addressing how to reposition localization from a cost center to a growth driver. Marco Rotelli, Senior Product Manager at eBay will drive a session on how localization technology can drive process transformation to operate at speed, and we will see case studies from Nicola Dorrington (GetYourGuide), Michael McCourt (McAfee), Heidi Welke (Tchibo) and Ciarán Duffy (ServiceNow), as well as a joint one from Andreas Merz (Crown Gabelstapler GmbH & Co) and David Serra (Acolad).
Intento, one of the event’s sponsors, will be on stage with its Customer Success and Professional Services Director Andy Nikulin, who will be joined by TXTOMedia’s CEO and co-founder Wouter Maagdenberg, as they present a use-case of MT engines with gender control. Those interested in learning about localization strategy should not miss a panel discussion with event sponsors Rigi, SYSTRAN and XTRF, who will give their thoughts on how to build a future-proof strategy for 2023 and beyond.
XTM will also have two of their localization technology experts presenting, as company CTO Andrzej Zydroń and Linguistic AI Expert Rafał Jaworski discuss the latest advances in large language models (LLM) and how AI advancements are blurring the line between futuristic visions and reality. The event will also be an opportunity for XTM’s new CEO Ian Evans to introduce himself to the wider audience, as he oversees his first XTM Live after taking over in January from co-founder and recently retired former-CEO Bob Willans, who will also be speaking at the event.
With more Day 1 speakers to be confirmed in the coming days, plus the announcement in mid-February of the speakers and activities for Day 2’s brand-new format, XTM Live’s first appearance back in Europe since 2019 is shaping up to be an unmissable event for all localization-technology professionals.
XTM Live is a fantastic opportunity to discover latest localization trends, learn from high-impact presentations and thought-leadership sessions from some of the top industry leaders and experts, and network with peers from around the world.
