We are pleased to inform you that the programme for the Languages & the Media Virtual Event 2020 – taking place on Tuesday, December 15, 2020 – is now online. When we had to postpone the full conference to September 2021, we decided to host an online event this year to bring a glimpse of the Languages & the Media experience home to you. With this Virtual Event, we’ll be offering our community an opportunity to come together and catch up on what has been happening in the world of content localisation and accessibility.

We will be hearing from a great line-up of guest speakers about the disruptive impact of COVID-19 on the industry and how the pandemic has become a trend accelerator for cloud infrastructure and remote collaboration. TV viewing and online video consumption have boomed during global lockdowns and advancements have been made in the deployment of AI and MT in localisation processes and access services. In light of these trends, our guests will be discussing what “new normal” we should be expecting beyond 2020 and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead for content producers, distributors, technology providers, LSPs, AVT researchers and freelancers.

The keynote and industry roundtable will be followed by another special event: the Jan Ivarsson Award ceremony which is traditionally hosted at Languages & the Media and presented by ESIST.
