Translator ex Machina – Machine translation in focus

Last week I visited Warsaw for The Translation & Localisation Conference 2018. It was amazing and inspiring to meet other linguists from all over Europe, listen to the presenters talk about the latest developments and changes in the industry, and geek out on linguistic topics (although we do that pretty regularly here in the office, too!).
