Role and Challenges of the Corporate Language Management at Daimler AG

Role and Challenges of the Corporate Language Management at Daimler AG

This video was recorded at META-FORUM 2011 - Solutions for Multilingual Europe, Budapest. META-FORUM was an international conference on powerful technologies for the multilingual European information society and an official event of the Hungarian EU Presidency. Cultural and linguistic diversity is a hallmark of European integration. While the European Union works in 23 official languages, a total of about 60 languages are spoken on our continent when regional languages are taken into account. Information provided to citizens, business partners, consumers and tourists keeps growing at a fast pace. Will businesses and public administrations be able to translate this vast quantity of text into 23 or 60 languages? For 23 languages, we already have 506 pairs of source and target languages, for 60 languages 3540 pairs are needed. Surely, we cannot afford to sacrifice our linguistic diversity. But, can we afford to maintain it? The event details can be found here.
