Quality Still Doesn't Matter - ATA San Francisco Presentation

As promised to the attendees of my presentation in San Francisco, here is a copy of my presentation.

The new directions of the translation industry is a ongoing topic for us at Common Sense Advisory. So stay tuned, read our blog at and send us comments whenever you have them. We love to hear new ideas.

And while you are visiting the Global Watchtower, read my posts on The End of Localization Taylorism and Dispatch from Localization World: Old Age Affects Localization Industry.

  1. April 20, 2011 - The link to your presentation does not work. I would have loved to listen to the presentation.

  2. Hi Oleg, I corrected the link. Now you can see it.

  3. I'm a professional translator myself. My expertise is Korean translation. I was a little upset about the title at first, but I have to say it was a little enlightening. Thank you for sharing this. It does make sense. We will only have more companies and translators available each year, and we need to accomodate to the change. Not just talk about competitve rate and quality, which every one claims to have. Thanks again. I think I'll check on your site regularly.
