This past Wednesday, I had the pleasure of interviewing translation technology guru Jost Zetzsche during a question and answer conference call. If you missed the live call, you can listen to the recording on the Speaking of Translation website (it streams from the conference call provider, so you don’t need to download anything unless you want to!). Lots of people submitted great questions for Jost to choose from, and on the recording you’ll hear his answers to:
- Are TM tool developers paying more attention to the editing process and how to support it?
- What’s the best terminology management tool for freelancers?
- Are translation management, content management and machine translation systems becoming more integrated?
- Does Déjà Vu support terminology blacklists?
- What is the best quality assurance tool for freelancers?
We also learned that Jost has co-authored (with Nataly Kelly) a new book called “Found in Translation,” which includes 90 stories of how translators and translation affect almost every aspect of our daily lives. It’s forthcoming from a Penguin imprint in the fall and will be available at the ATA conference (can’t wait to get a copy!). Thanks to Jost for so generously donating his time, and if you don’t yet subscribe to his Tool Box technology newsletter for translators, you should!
the Q&A call with Jost Zetzsche isn’t available (anymore). When I try to listen to it, I get this message: “Conference playback URL has expired, please contact the conference host for more details.”
Would it be possible to upload it again? Thanks!

Hi Milos! I would just make sure you’re using the correct link on our website; the URL expires in 2013 (!). I just tested it and it worked, so I would advise just trying again.
Thanks, Corinne! I had some trouble connecting to the call and ended up missing the entire thing so this is perfect.

Thanks for the reminder! I was stuck in an interpreting assignment and couldn’t attend the live call, but I will be sure to listen to it soon. Always lovely to hear what our IT guru Jost has to say.
Thanks for the answer Corinne! Finally I realized the issue was my browsers security settings. Listening to the interview now 🙂 Thank you!
