Translation Techniques Order now!

For some, translating is an intuitive process based on the translator’s creative capability, while others believe that only specialists like lawyers or scientists can translate. This video views translation as a problem-solving process that involves factual knowledge, a command of the languages and cultures involved, the resources available to the translator, and procedural knowledge, that is, the techniques of the translation craft.

The business of owning a CAT tool Order now!

Investing in a CAT tool is a big decision. Not only are you are investing hard-earned cash, but a considerable amount of time in training yourself to use it efficiently. Of course, the investment pays dividends in greater productivity, but many find it abhorrent that work providers (usually agencies) then insist on benefiting from the translator’s investment by paying reduced rates for exact or near matches to an existing translation memory segment.

Translation technology – what’s missing and what has gone wrong? Order now!

The employment of technology has become crucial for the life of the professional translator. While there are many different levels of how technology can be used – from the spell-checking of a word processor all the way to machine translation – every user/translator should have some idea of what could be improved and what might in fact be an obstacle in his or her working life. This was a highly interactive session in which participants submitted questions before and during the session. Some technology vendors also took part in this session.
