Translated, Welocalize, SDL, Pangeanic & MateCat – i.e. some of the worst crooks on the translation market, which they have been infesting and polluting for some time now, are going one step further in killing businesses and possibly people, needlessly, since those crooks do not aim at quality (despite their assurances to the contrary to gullbile (mostly first-time) customers), but at making fat profits on the backs of both the people who produce translations and their customers.
Now newcomers on the translation market have to suffer a new propaganda message: post-editing machine translation is “the UNAVOIDABLE new interesting development in translation: look the other way or be part of it”!!
I.e. those crooks are spreading new PROPAGANDA to FORCE-FEED PEMT to GULLIBLE NEWBIES on the translation market! Presented as the “latest trendy thing”.
This is the piece of shit I received in my Inbox this morning.
Needless to say, I told them my mind.
I hope you do too.
And denounce this gang of crooks to your own customers – or rather, do not make any publicity for them, but do denounce them when the occasion arises!
“Hi [my first name: disrespectful from the start],
Have you already noticed the first signs of change in our industry? The translation world is undergoing a major transformation, and this is just the beginning.
Faced with this disruption, you have two options: look the other way, or be part of it. [THREATENING TONE, TERRORISM: PSYCHOPATHS?!]
The School of Advanced Technologies for Translators is designed to help you understand current and future trends in our industry, and to provide opportunities to learn and acquire the skills now required by LSPs [= ILLEGAL: THEY ARE NO EMPLOYERS!!!].
There is an ever-widening gap between what professional translators offer and what the industry now needs [= MORE AND MORE TRANSLATORS REFUSE TO WORK FOR THOSE CROOKS AND TO USE THEIR EXTORTION TOOLS WHICH ARE ALSO TORTURE TOOLS AND THEY ARE RIGHT. LSPs DEMANDS ARE ILLEGAL ANYWAY.]. Stay up-to-date and add value to your profile as a translator by participating in this EXCLUSIVE 2-day course organized by FBK, one of the world’s top research centres for language technologies [WHAT TECHNOLOGIES? THEY ALL SLOW US DOWN WHILE CONSIDERABLY LOWERING QUALITY – THEY ARE ALL ILLEGAL PRETEXTS FOR EXTORTING PART OF OUR ALREADY MEAGER REMUNERATION, WHICH FURTHER DEMONSTRATES THAT THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND TRANSLATION NOR DO THEY BELONG TO THE TRANSLATION MARKET.], and sponsored by Translated, Welocalize, SDL, Pangeanic and MateCat [= SOME OF THE WORST UNPROFESSIONAL CROOKS POLLUTING THE TRANSLATION MARKET, BUT WE WILL KICK THEM OUT!].
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION ENDS 31 JULY – Don’t miss out!

The School of Advanced Technologies for Translators will be held in Trento, Italy on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 September 2017 [THOSE CROOKS EXPECT US TO PAY SO THAT WE CAN LEARN HOW THEY CAN EXTORT US MORE MONEY VIA CAT TOOLS AND PEMT: THEY ARE FULL OF SHIT!!!]. The full program, list of speakers and registration link can be found on the school’s website.
On the first day, the school will cover the basics of state-of-the-art machine translation technology, as well as the relevant aspects of its applications in post-editing, from an educational, professional and industrial perspective.
On the second day, two courses on CAT tools will be offered:
– SDL Trados Studio 2017
Hope to see you there,
Senior Vendor Manager”
PLEASE DENOUNCE THOSE CROOKS AND THEIR PROPAGANDA “SCHOOL” TO ALL TRANSLATORS, ESPECIALLY NEWCOMERS.
THOSE COMPANIES HAVE TO BE MENTIONED ON TRANSLATION SCHOOLS’ OFFICIAL LISTS OF CROOKS ON THE TRANSLATION MARKET, TO BE DISTRIBUTED TO ALL STUDENTS IN TRANSLATION – and to be reviewed annually, adding new names and deleting those that we will make bankrupt.
