With the implementation of the Belt and Road Initiative and the accelerated internationalization of Chinese enterprises, cross-language cultural exchange has become an important task in "going global," which has brought forth new development opportunities for companies engaged in translation services. TSC Director Huang Song said in his speech that, in the past decades, with the rapid development of information technology and translation technology, the organization model and management model of translation have undergone revolutionary changes. The summit has provided a platform for the in-depth communication between the supply and demand sides of translation services, which will provide new thoughts and ideas for the in-depth cooperation and mutual benefits for both parties, as well as the orderly development of the translation service market for a new phase.
