In the 2013 TAUS Translation Technology Landscape report we marked the shortage of talent as one of the biggest constraints for growth and innovation in the global translation sector. In this session we talk about the sustainability of the professional human resource versus the requirement for translation and localization. We ask recruiters from both client and vendor corporations to join this discussion and talk about the challenges they face in recruiting talent. We will also get the views of a localization recruitment professional, and two leading universities – how are they shaping their curriculums to best meet the challenges and requirements of the industry? We talk about the most effective way to roll out the new free TAUS Academic Membership program which will give students at all universities in the world access to the TAUS Data repository and Dynamic Quality Framework resources as well as the various knowledge bases to help future translation and localization staff in their studies and with their experiments in translation quality evaluation and machine translation training.
