On-Demand Webinar | The elusive encounter of a survey methodologist, a platform engineer and a translation technologist
The elusive encounter of a survey methodologist, a platform engineer and a translation technologist
Speaker – Steve Dept, Founder & CEO
Recorded on July 15, 2020 | Duration: 20 minutes
For the past two decades, the literature has hailed team translation as the gold standard in survey translation. In the same two decades, technology, too, has achieved spectacular progress. Two areas where such advances have been observed are translation technology – with a special focus on computer-assisted translation tools and automated quality assurance tools – and survey administration platforms.
Importance of a dialogue between survey methodologist, translation technologist and a platform engineer
Has there been a dialogue between survey methodologists who advocate and implement good practice, translation technologists who use and apply new tools, and platform engineers who have designed and streamlined new questionnaire administration systems?
Join cApStAn’s founder Steve Dept to learn about the optimal workflows that allow a better integration of needs and requirements from all three parties – survey methodologist, a platform engineer and a translation technologist – without increasing the overall translation costs and without compromising translation quality.
