HAITrans present at IATIS Training Event


On 21 April, the International Association for Translation and Intercultural Studies (IATIS) and the Institute of Translation and Multilingual Communication at TH Köln University of Applied Sciences jointly organised a training event on "Neural Machine Translation - Foundations, Applications and Implications". Researchers and industry experts shared insights into the historical foundations and current developments, industry implementation, post-editing competence, ethics, and education in the context of neural machine translation (NMT). HAITrans members Claudia Wiesinger, Raluca Chereji and Justus Brockmann were invited to present their NMT-related PhD research projects. The three projects investigate applications of speech technologies (automatic speech recognition/automatic speech synthesis) in translation and NMT post-editing.

With 300 registered and more than 100 active participants throughout the day, the event showed that there continues to be great interest in NMT as currently one of the most-discussed technologies in the field of translation.
