Minneapolis, MN, USA (October 20, 2017)United Language Group (ULG) will give a presentation on domain-specific Machine Translation solutions at this year’s tekom fair and tcworld annual conference in Stuttgart, Germany, taking place October 24-26, 2017.

ULG will be attending the event and sharing Machine Translation (MT) knowledge, while meeting with thousands of technical communicators from around the world during the exhibition. ULG’s MT thought leaders hail from Germany by way of Lucy Software and Services, GmbH, which ULG acquired in March of 2017. The Germany and Spain-based company was founded in 2006 and built formidable, specialized MT software solutions and SAP localization services. The acquisition allowed ULG to bolster its MT translation automation expertise.

Tekom is the largest technical communication event of its kind, and brings in upwards of 4,000 attendees. The conference hosts several different presentations and has had more than 200 exhibitors from over 30 countries in years past.

Topics covered at the conference include content strategies, translation and localization, information logistics and quality assurance.

ULG’s Daniel Grasmick and Harald Elsen will present “Introduction Of Domain-Specific Machine Translation Solutions” at the conference. The session will take place from 9:45-10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 25 in room C7.3.

“The expectation that pre-assembled MT systems are solutions for various scenarios lead to great disappointments,” said Elsen. “We will share our experiences on domain-specific MT solutions in the Life Science, Law and Finance Sectors.”

Elsen has vast experience in computer linguistic and localization, specializing in language technologies in translation. The presentation will give insights into MT methods, processes and metrics surrounding domain-specific solutions.

Saul Carliner of Concordia University of Montreal will be this year’s keynote speaker. Carliner will present “Existential Questions in TC: Education, Experience, Community and Technology.”

ULG will be at booth F20 during the event.
