INVITATION Sep 19, 2006

Language related opportunities are abound in India which is one of the largest markets in the world.

Microsoft study shows that the Local Language IT market is in a development stage and the market is expected to grow at a healthy rate of 80 percent (CAGR) from $ 11 Million in 2002 to $ 64 Million in 2005 and $ 115 Million in 2006

Accordingly as per our estimates the Translation market is estimated to grow from $ 115 millions in 2006 to 1150 millions by 2010. (This estim

Accordingly as per our estimates the Translation market is estimated to grow from $ 115 millions in 2006 to 1150 millions by 2010. (This estimate is based on comparative analysis of data issued by a leading consultancy Common Sense advisory: that Asia shares 12% of the Translation market, and that we assume India shares 50% of the Asian market since it is the Global destination for BPO and IT outsourcing).

Under given situation what is the role that the Indian Translators play ? , how come they shall be able to cope up with ever changing technological advancements and meet International demands? Every now and then a new CAT tool is developed leaving Indian translators perplexed …………

Let’s discuss these issues……..

Undersigned (Ravi Kumar) presented features of Heartsome – a very economical CAT tool, and he was followed by Mr. Rawal who explained the usage of Wordfast and Trados.

After the interactive session was over on CAT tools, participants enjoyed informal interaction followed by sharing of snacks, cold drinks and tea.

Overall the event was very useful, and I thank all the participants for making this event a success.

There should be more and more such events. Oct 16, 2006

Updated knowledge about software is something which no translator can dare to ignore. The meeting provided its participants with detailed, latest information on software products in the field of translation. This was much needed as Indian translators find it difficult to get expertise in the technological aspect of translation due to several factors.

The meeting provided its participants with detailed, latest information on software products in the field of translation. This was much needed as Indian translators find it difficult to get expertise in the technological aspect of translation due to several factors.

I was glad to see that the organizer did not limit himself to professional domain, but also explored the possibilities of social work through the field of translation.

Next time I hope more and more translators come to attend such meetings and get benefited from the experiences of veterans in this field.
