Crisis is good for business

Language/Translation industry is currently a 14-billion dollar industry. It's also growing very fast.

Language Weaver is one of the leading companies in automated translation software. In this video Language Weaver President and CEO Mark Tapling comments why crisis is good for machine translation. Basically he's advising big companies to invest in their own automated translation software solutions and to "reduce costs" meaning - to reduce salaries for human translators. Language Weaver is the second global provider after Google to support Bulgarian language for machine translation.

'Alas, for us miserable lot, all that man is is nothing. So we will all be after the underworld takes us away. So let us live well while we can.'
