MESA members take part in the Languages and the Media event in Berlin, invenioLSI and SAP talk content financial solutions, and Qvest hosts its first-ever Women in Technology Panel.

Those are just a few of the events from the MESA community the week of Nov. 7-11, according to MESA’s global member e-calendar.

Here’s a look at what’s ahead:


• Monday through Wednesday, the 14th edition of Languages & The Media, the International Conference and Exhibition on Language Transfer in Audiovisual Media takes place in Berlin, with several MESA members taking part in exhibitions and panels.

2020 was the year that dubbing got disrupted and a host of new software applications and solutions appeared in the market, bringing this popular audiovisual translation practice closer to its cinephile cousin, subtitling.

The perennial question of whether to dub or to sub was asked anew in 2021 and the answer was a resounding “both,” as viewers around the world got reacquainted with the art of media localisation. As with other topics that make global headlines, be it a new vaccine or the quality of translation in a top-grossing show, everyone has an opinion. If there was ever a time for the creative media localisation experts to escape the invisibility of their profession and tell the world their story, it is now.
