Today’s neural machine translation (NMT) engines can translate simple texts quickly and acceptably into a wide range of other languages. And they’re improving constantly. So how did we get here?
Diego Mosca is the new Chief Operating Officer of Supertext Deutschland. An Italian by birth and a Berliner by choice, he knows the language industry like the back of his hand. As a certified translator, language coordinator and sales manager, he’s worked in Spain, Poland, Italy and Germany in the last 12 years alone. And he’s always got seven different phrasebooks and a volleyball kit along for the ride.
