Share, Cooperate, Grow - the LIND Web Forum

More than 180 participants met in Brussels for the first LIND Web Forum on 24 May 2012, organised by DG Translation of the European Commission. Rytis Martikonis, Director-General of DGT, opened the Forum, followed by high-level key note speakers and panelists, covering the broad spectrum of the Language Industry. The industry faces several challenges that were the topics of the afternoon parallel sessions: Statistics, classification for the sector, qualifications & employability and the societal role of the Language Industry. CELAN put forward its classification suggestions developed in the course of the project. The coffee and lunch breaks provided a convivial atmosphere of networking amongst representatives from industry, academia, associations, EC and individual translators which made the event an attractive meeting point. The LIND website promotes visibility and recognition of the Language Industry by collecting data and information concerning the sector.
