Businesses have been transcending the borders of time, place, and languages for more than a decade now. Nowadays, customers don’t need to wait for something to reach to them because they have ordered it from a business set up in another country. Most likely, that business would have a branch in their country as well and the product they need can reach them within hours. With the growth and innovation in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), it has become easier to expand businesses to other countries, improving the reach of services and products to customers worldwide. These developments have also impacted the Indonesian interpretation services to a great extent.
When it comes to expanding to new countries, language has been a major barrier, limiting people and businesses to interact with each other. In the good old days, business owners needed a human translator to be around for all business meetings and also while signing any contracts. Owing to the progress in the field of translation and interpretation, this scenario has changed drastically, especially for the Indonesian interpretation services industry. The latest Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2020, held at the Las Vegas convention centre in the US, was a witness to many gadgets that show a promising future for the translation and interpretation services.
