Slator 2018 Blockchain and Translation Report

Blockchain technology allows digital information to be distributed via a decentralized ledger, the blockchain. The most widely known usage of blockchain technology is Bitcoin. But aside from Bitcoin and the many hundreds of cryptocurrencies that have sprung up on the blockchain, there are far broader possible uses for blockchain technology whose potential are starting to be explored across many different industries.

From smart contracts to peer-to-peer marketplaces, and from supply chain auditing to identification management, the use cases for blockchain technology are numerous. And so it is no surprise that the language industry, too, has been exploring how this potentially disruptive technology can be leveraged in the translation, localization, and machine translation supply chain.
