You work hard to create content that will be useful to your global customers and help them make decisions about your products and services. But it’s not a one-time deal: it’s highly likely that your first pieces of content will include information that changes over time. However diligent the research at the time of writing to ensure that the[…]
As brands embrace new, more agile ways of getting their products to international markets, linear processes are being disrupted. Language quality assurance (LQA) is no different. To get it right, forward-thinking companies have begun to incorporate quality as a layer, instead of a step, in their globalization processes.
Arabic is the fifth largest language spoken in the world and one of the fastest growing in the US. But it’s consistently ranked as one of the hardest languages to learn, and to localize. Whether you need to translate content from English to Arabic or vice versa, it’s important to understand the dynamics of this complicated match-up to resource for[…]
How artificial intelligence is shaping the localization industry is a subject we approach from many different angles. Generally, though, we’ve found that those interested in AI tend to fall into three camps: those who are suspicious and fearful of it (Will AI replace humans?), those who directly develop the technology (How can we improve AI?) and[…]

Each year, RWS Moravia is also an exhibitor, speaker or attendee at over 20 worldwide events from organizations like TAUS, ATMA, LocWorld and GALA. We love interacting with people[…]
Using Natural Language Generation (NLG) tools to create content has been getting quite a bit of buzz in the past few years. (NLG is a subset of the general discipline of artificial intelligence.) The first content creation engines struggled with relatively basic writing tasks, producing content that was robotic in every sense. Many of these[…]
Most of us would say we exist in a single dimension known as the universe. But what about the idea of a multiverse? Do you believe in the existence of infinite parallel universes, each governed by their own laws of nature?
In a recent blog post, we ran through what it takes to execute a machine translation program, from assessing what content works best for MT to deploying an MT engine. But choosing the right engine for your projects is a part of the process that merits more detailed discussions. Considering the many choices available on the market—dozens at last[…]
Localization professionals tend to be the sort of people you’d call ‘globally minded’: we’re a multicultural melting pot; many of us love travel; a lot of us study languages. We are proud to be citizens of the world.
Let’s talk about Generation Z, also known as Post-Millennials, the iGeneration or the more homogeneous “world’s first global generation.”
