Globalisation may have become a dirty word politically recently, if the results of the U.S. presidential election, the Brexit referendum in Britain and some European election campaigns are anything to go by.

The actual job of translating in 2017 is probably a bit of a mystery to many people who need a translation done for them. They probably think that the translator sits in front of his or her computer with a text extract mentally engaged in switching from one language to another.

2017 is already 2 months old, so what’s going on in the language service industry this year? Here are four key trends for the remainder of this year.
* No shortage in demand for the translation industry
* Machine translation gets better but nowhere does it replace human translation
* More performance tracking for professional translators
* Asia will continue to be the highest growth area for translation services
