2018: The Year of Artificial Intelligence in Translation

Every company’s aim is to focus on their sustainable competitive advantage to improve their positioning in a crowded marketplace. With the current explosion of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning (DL), many companies feel as though they should implement these technologies to improve their bottom line. Among those available, machine translation (MT) is often selected as the preferred tool for global business for its outstanding combination of price, quality, and speed.
