Johann Roturier is a member of the Symantec Research Labs Team in Dublin, Ireland. His current research interests lie at the intersection of natural language processing, localization, and human factors in security. Johann completed his Ph.D. thesis in 2007, which investigated the impact of controlled language rules on various characteristics of machine-translated documentation. Since then, he has transferred some of his research findings into production processes, co-authored several papers and patents, and worked with multiple product teams.
During that time, he has also authored a book on localization (published by Routledge), taken part in standardization activities, served on numerous program committees for top-tier conferences (e.g. ACL, NAACL, EMNLP), co-supervised several Ph.D. Computer Science and Applied Language students, and acted as the scientific representative of the FP7 ACCEPT collaborative research project.
