Global language service provider thebigword is proud to announce that it will again sponsor the LocWorld conference taking place in Seattle this October.

LocWorld is the leading conference for international business, translation, localisation and global website management. Delegates attending the conference are responsible for communicating across the boundaries of language and culture in the global marketplace. With a specific emphasis on global business, the conference provides an opportunity for the exchange of high-value information in the language and translation services and technologies market.

The LocWorld 38 Conference which is being held at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle will focus on business in a heavily digitalized world. The Internet of things, big data, machine to machine communication, block chain, AI – what is the effect of all these technologies, this “Digital Transformation”, on society and business? How are we, in the localization space, challenged by this? How can we use this to our advantage?

Successful international companies take advantage of the reach and scope of our digital world to interact with new customers and keep them happy. A well-designed user experience has become paramount. Customers ask for service information that is immediately understandable and accessible no matter the language and viewing device.

And, behind the scenes, the localisation industry deal with new AI-driven translation technology, new processes that improve project management, and updated standards that streamline system intercommunication.

The age of Digital Transformation is all around us.

CEO of thebigword Nihat Arkan said: “The ever growing digitalization of our world presents huge opportunities for thebigword as a technology driven language service provider, so I am delighted that Locworld 38 will be focussing on this and we look forward to sponsoring the event in October”.
