Trends, Innovation and Multilingual Communication in the 2020s Robert E. Etches, English Ink
In a world full of fake news and politicians desperately holding on to yesterday, where are the dreamers, the visionaries, who can inspire our tomorrows? What are the exciting goals that are way passed Likes in a Facebook account? We could and should ask the same questions of our own industry. The world around us is changing so fast it is almost impossible to keep up – but the translation and localisation industry is basically still operating the way it did 20 years ago. It will not continue to do so.Where there’s change, there’s opportunity! Let’s look at all the exciting opportunities opening up for those of us working in the industry that’s empowering the world to communicate!
Robert Etches is currently Head of Translation Innovation at Semantix, the leading language company in the Nordics. Part of the industry for 30 years, Robert has worked with every aspect of it, from freelance translation to top management and everything in between. Always active in the community, Robert was co-founder of the Word Management Group (1996), the TextMinded Group (2007), and the Nordic CAT Group (2011). He served four years (2013-2016) on the Board of GALA (two as Chairman), and is currently a board member at LT-Innovate. The power of sharing, innovation and a passion for language: these are what still get him out of bed in the morning!
