Aslib Conference: TRANSLATING AND THE COMPUTER

Abraham de Wolf of Lucy Software to present on "The simple complexity of copyright of translations" at Aslib "Translating and the Computer" conference, London, from 19-20 November 2009.

Daniel Grasmick and Abraham de Wolf of Lucy Software and Services will be attending the Aslib conference in London.

Organized by Aslib (Association for Information Management), the conference is now in its 31st year. It allows language professionals to brainstorm new ideas and gain from the solid experience of their peers. Issues of both theoretical research and the latest product developments are dealt with from the practitioners' point of view. This year's conference features presentations on Machine Translation, crowdsourcing, and cloud computing, among many others.

Daniel will chair the first morning of the conference, and Abraham will present on "The simple complexity of copyright of translations", explaining a basic structure with which copyright issues can be identified and understood. The focus will be on the use of software for translations and addresses under what conditions who owns what and who else might have rights of use that exist aside from ownership rights.

For visitors deciding to attend the conference at the last-minute, we have a limited number of discounted tickets available. Contact us for more details.
