Published by David Orban
In our global world of rapid technological change, the need for clear and deep communication has never been more urgent. Whether for personal interests or to implement professional services, today we have the opportunity to bridge the language barriers with computer based tools that complement our own knowledge and skills. Nobody is more exposed to this than professionals and enterprises in the localization industry, which broadly defined, is the bedrock of globalization. Being able to ride the incoming waves of change is a function of smart adaptation and adoption in a co-evolving, rich ecosystem of dynamic, flexible solutions.

Edited transcript of the keynote presentation delivered at the 2013 GALA Conference in Miami, on March 18, 2013. The transcript has been revised for better readability and some errors have been corrected.

The video of the talk, including time-coded captions and translated subtitles, as well as the slides used are available online.

Introduction
I will be talking to you about the challenges that we have to keep adapting to thechanging conditions that technology, as it evolves, poses to us as human beings, as people in our  personal lives but also in our enterprises, in our corporations, and in society at large.My talk is divided in three major parts, talking about a change in broad strokes andhopefully giving you provocative views of what already is happening around us at anaccelerating pace and also giving you a glimpse of the farther out future that is approaching athigher and higher speeds. The second will be concrete examples of what is happening as peopleare applying these technologies and these opportunities to their work life, to their dailychallenges. Then third, if possible, I will humbly offer some principles that you should be able toapply as takeaways, actionable results, from what I have exposed previously. Then finally wewill have time to ask some questions.But before you have the opportunity of asking some questions, I want to. Can you raiseyour hands? Who would define herself or himself as an entrepreneur in the audience? Higher, please. So a lot of you. I would say at least 60% of the audience defines herself or himself as anentrepreneur. Including the entrepreneurs, who would define herself or himself as a manager rather than people who are told what to do? Almost everybody does. Who feels that they arecreators, whether creators of written information, visual information, or creators of code? Itmakes no difference. About half of the audience does. Okay. So we will go back to thesequestions at the end.
My story
Before we go into the deep part of our discussion, I want to tell you as the zeroth chapter of my talk a little bit about myself. I've been born in Budapest, Hungary, so I have an experienceas the child of an actor and of a painter to naturally want to become a scientist. [laughter]The opportunity was right there when I was studying physics in Milan and PaduaUniversity, and I, by the way, dropped out—I didn't finish my physics studies—to go to the mostexciting place that there can be in the physics profession, which is the Large Hadron Collider atCERN, which was then being built and now is the most amazing machine, the most complex, themost expensive machine that humanity has ever built. With the discovery of the Higgs boson, itis just fantastic. But I didn't want to become a cog in a team of 15,000 people where I might havehad a chance of becoming something or nothing. I just didn't know. I wanted to discover and dothings where I thought I could have an impact that would leverage what I could do on my own aswell.
