As we are coming towards the end of 2014, December seems like the perfect time to look back and reflect upon what has been a busy year for Capita Translation and Interpreting (Capita TI). We have been particularly busy attending, exhibiting and presenting at a variety of events.
Let’s look back on 2014 and sum up our most successful events:
May –We hosted our very own boat party on the river Liffey in Dublin alongside the yearly European LocWorld event. Joanne Taylor recorded her experience of the party in ‘Localisation on the Liffey‘.
Kristine Berry, took on the challenge of presenting 21 slides with only 21 seconds to speak per slide!
July – Will Barlow was one of the Strategic Business Managers in attendance at the Figaro Digital Marketing Conference. Our Global Sales and Marketing Director, Kristine Berry, took on the challenge of presenting 21 slides with only 21 seconds to speak per slide! You can watch her complete the challenge here.
August – Stewart Crabb, Account Manager for the gaming industry, attended the Gamescom conference in Cologne where he learnt a lot about the big-wide-world of gaming, and how this continues to expand with the advancement of technology.
September – Sarah Barrett was one of our US team members to attend International Manufacturing Trade Show in Chicago. Sarah talks about her time walking the floor with her colleagues, and the abundance of useful conversations she participated in.
Attending, exhibiting and presenting at a series of events throughout the year has provided us with a wealth of knowledge on the localisation industry.
October – October was our busiest month of the year in terms of events. Ephraim Angus was one of our Strategic Business Managers exhibiting at the eCommerce Expo event in London, whilst Diana Heppe visited the Global Gaming Convention (G2E) in Las Vegas. Staying within the Americas – Herb Fyfield attended LocWorld Vancouver where Kristine Berry presented on data security with Across Systems, and Antonio Tejada presented at TAUS, again in Vancouver, on evaluating Machine Translation within the localisation process.
November – Chris Maher tells us about his experiences of exhibiting at Going Global Live and Kristine Berry presented once more at the Figaro Digital Marketing Conference. You can watch her energetic presentation on ‘Translation is not enough’.
Attending, exhibiting and presenting at a series of events throughout the year has provided us with a wealth of knowledge on the localisation industry. Attending the likes of digital marketing conferences, manufacturing shows, gaming conventions and ecommerce events has also enabled us to gain greater insight into the industries that our customers work within.
2015 will see a similar series of events, and we can’t wait to be part of it once more!
