"Translators will never become superfluous. Somebody will need to be there to 'feed' the machines. To localize and adapt. To provide a human touch. True, translators will need to expand their offerings and provide comprehensive business services, accessible over different time zones and platforms, where the actual translation will only be one component and I expect to see more of these adaptive skills emerging in 2019. This, combined with the innovative, technology-based business networks and collaborations, will be the way forward."
