Description

Slator is coming to London

We are proud to host the very first SlatorCon at the Ace Hotel London in the heart of the British capital.

SlatorCon explores some of the key drivers of the language services and technology industry such as mergers and acquisitions, venture capital, neural machine translation, life sciences, and accelerating translation productivity. We are excited to welcome some of the foremost experts in these areas, who will share their views on how these drivers are shaping the industry.

SlatorCon features six 20-minute presentations followed by an expert panel moderated by Slator co-founder Florian Faes. After the event, participants can connect with their peers during a networking reception.
