    14:30 – 15:00 Which GlobalLink Am I? - Javier Masides

    With multiple GlobalLink solutions available to help clients manage their global content, it can sometimes be confusing for those new to multilingual content to determine which product or products will best serve their needs. During this session, attendees will see typical use cases for each product and have the ability to ask questions about which product would drive the most efficiencies based on their content, internal structure and overall business goals. This session is intended for attendees who are considering GlobalLink for the first time, or if you are curious about how other GlobalLink products can supplement your current technology suite.

    15:00 – 15:30 Using GlobalLink with Machine Translation - Diego Bartolome

    Machine translation (MT) is fast becoming a more accepted resource based on recent advances in overall quality. This session will provide an overview of different use cases for MT, available MT options and how MT can be integrated into GlobalLink to provide a seamless and efficient experience for applicable content.

    15:30 – 16:00 Supply Chain Management in Project Director - Keith Brazil

    Did you know that Project Director can be used to manage multiple vendors and resources from a single platform? This session will provide a detailed look at how Project Director can be the central hub to coordinate all of your translation requirements across any set of translators (internal or external) to dramatically reduce project management, time to market and overall costs.

    15:30 – 16:00 Translation Editors Current and Future - Xavier Fort

    The way in which translators interact with content has changed dramatically over the last few years. This session will provide an overview on how GlobalLink is changing the game when it comes to making the translation process more efficient, and show how we are optimising the experience for individual translators. It will also provide a preview of new functionality for our translation editor tools that will be released over the next 12 months.
