The Language Industry

The Language Industry is a forum where language professionals share news, information, knowledge and insights and take a look at what is going on in the various segments of the language industry.

By language professionals, we mean language teachers, language technologists, creators of language products and language study aids, translators and editors, interpreters, providers of language training and language travel solutions, lexicographers and terminologist, literacy workers, technical writers and any others who are involved with language professionally and who earn their living from language-related work.

The Language Industry aims to contribute to the development of a sustainable language industry. Everyone benefits from a well-developed language industry with a strong image — in the first place the language professionals themselves, but of course also, the economy and the wider community. For a strong economy, including foreign trade, and a vital, open and inclusive community, adequate literacy and multilingualism are important strengths, if not absolute necessities. It is language professionals who develop and create these strengths!
