Hey friends!

I hope you’re having a lovely Wednesday!

Just wanted to share a quick recap of our conversation with Vladimir Zakharov that we had last week on our show.

Last week we invited SmartCAT’s community manager Vladimir Zakharov (aka Vova) to talk about translation technology and bust some common myths and fears.

With a major in physics and computer science, over 15 years of translating experience, and eight months in the SmartCAT team, Vova was a perfect fit for our conversation.

You can watch the replay right here.

About Vladimir

At age 6, Vova put a hairpin into a power socket and started translating Shakespeare. We don’t know if these two events were related, but they certainly lit up his interest to technology and languages, which burns to this day.

In this episode you will learn:

  • What kinds of translation technologies exist;
  • Whether translators should be afraid of technology;
  • How to make technology your friend;

…and much more!
