MT Deployment: Best Practices
The presentation provides a brief overview of the current state of MT use (including major pros and cons), outlines notable market trends, and goes over various takeaways from the ongoing MT deployment epic at Logrus IT.

Cabbages and Quality: Creating Quality Metrics Applicable in Real Life
The presentation discusses various shortcomings of the currently published MQM and DQF quality approach and error typology and suggests a completely ready, fully scalable, 3D, hybrid Quality Triangle approach to measure translation quality. It then goes on to explain how existing error typologies can be modified to become truly scalable, how they are integrated into the Quality Triangle model, and how to create quality metrics of varying complexity on the fly using ready, "frozen" components.
