About the Video

Introduction to IT Translation & Software Localisation

This video will help participants understand what IT and software translation means, what are the differences between IT translation and software localisation, what is included in an IT translation project and what are the techniques you need to develop as a translator in this field. Focus will be placed on specialisation in sub-domains within IT and the various products you can come across in your translation career (including items with hardware and software/firmware requirements), as well as on ways to become familiar with the field itself. Examples of projects will also be provided in order to shape sample workflows during the video.

This video is the first in a series of three. Please click these links for the second video – Translation Techniques for IT Translation and Software Localisation – and the third, which covers Translation Tools for IT translators, both available in our e-library.

All three videos are available for a bundle purchase with a reduced price saving you 10£ from the total amount – just enter the discount code ITCOURSEBUNDLE.
