19-20 November 2009, London


There is still time to book your place on this year's exciting Conference!


I am delighted to announce that the keynote speaker of the Conference is now

Marco Trombetti of TRANSLATED.  Marco is co-founder and CEO of TRANSLATED
and oversees the use of technology to increase quality and reduce costs.
Before founding TRANSLATED, Marco developed internet solutions for digital
mapping companies and web information retrieval / data-mining tools. His
presentation will be on his system that falls somewhere between traditional
professional LSP and crowdsourcing..  Further details on his paper will
appear on the Aslib Conference web site soon.


The second paper on the 19th November will now be:

Yours or Mine or What? The simple complexity of copyright of translations
Abraham de Wolf, Lucy Software and Services, Germany 
The presentation will offer the audience a basic structure with which
copyright issues can be identified and understood. The focus will be on the
use of software for translations and addresses under what conditions who
owns what, and who else might have rights of use aside from ownership
rights. Copyright aspects of the use of free internet translation machines
and collaborative translation platforms will also be looked at. And to round
things up some basic recommendations for how to address copyright issues in
contracts with customers, free lancers and employees will be given.


This year, the programme includes two panel discussions: one on
crowdsourcing and one on who owns Translation Memories!  


Visit the conference web site and book your place now:




The conference web site also includes an interactive hotel map so that you
can find the best deals possible to suit your budget.


I look forward to meeting you at the Conference!
