Members of Adobe’s Translation Technology Team are currently getting our visas in order, because we are headed to China later this month! We will be presenting some of our recent work at the Machine Translation Summit, held September 19-23 in Xiamen, China.
MT Summit is the major conference for the MT industry. Held every other year, the conference rotates between the Americas, Europe, and Asia. This year the hosting duties fall to the Asia-Pacific Association for Machine Translation, and the conference is being held on the scenic campus of the Xiamen National Accounting Institute
Adobe is well represented on the conference’s schedule. On Wednesday, I will be presenting on our strategy for increasing the use of MT within Adobe, and on Thursday, my colleague Jeff Rueppel will present a demo of some tools we have been developing to simplify the use of the Moses open-source MT package.
Furthermore, this summer we have been extremely fortunate to host a summer intern, Yifan He from the Centre for Next-Generation Localisation (CNGL) in Dublin. Yifan appears multiple times on the MT Summit schedule — co-teaching a tutorial and presenting a paper as well as a poster. We attribute his spectacular showing to a combination of his natural brilliance and Adobe’s nurturing atmosphere. Great job, Yifan!
If you plan to be at the conference, please come find us! We are always eager to hear about other people’s experiences with MT, especially in the corporate setting. See you in Xiamen!
