Across kicks off conference season

Last week, our colleagues Raymund Prins and Bert Dijkhuis attended the LSP Day and user conference held by our translation software partner Across Systems in Cologne. With these two inspiring days, Across kicked off the 2019 conference season. Global textware visited the conference in order to gauge the temperature in the sector, learn about the latest functionalities, and trade its experiences with fellow translation agencies.


A machine translation upgrade for translation productivity

Technology has been an indispensable “partner” in the translation field for many years. During this conference, machine translation (MT) took center stage as a crucial area of interest. It is expected that the demand for delivering large volumes of translation work as fast as possible will keep increasing and the latest in MT technology is what enables translation agencies to continue satisfying this client need.


New functions in Across translation software

Global textware teams have been working with the innovative translation software by Across for years. We use software by Across to complete and deliver the majority of our technical and automotive work as well as our wide range of medical translation projects.

“By listening closely to its user base, Across has recently developed and implemented several valuable updates, including the ability to open several files at the same time. This has significantly increased the speed of working in Across,” said Bert Dijkhuis.


In addition to all the work-related sessions, there was plenty of time for relaxation and socialising. There was juggling and a dinner cruise across the Rhine as well as many opportunities to swap stories with our colleagues in the field during several networking meetings.
We would like to thank Across Systems GmbH for this fun and inspiring conference.
