  • 9th Annual International Translation Conference Program (27-28 May 2018)

    Category: events on May 28th, 2018

    The time is past when digital technology in translation was no more than a supporting tool. The digital revolution is transforming the landscape of translation theory and practice. From translation memory tools to online corpora and databases, to machine translation and to cloud-based workspaces, technology is making translation more effective and time-efficient, while changing the roles and profiles of translators themselves. Furthermore, beyond enhancing and facilitating the translator’s work, the new technologies are making a profound impact on the very nature of our discipline.

    Kind of event: academic + industry

    Outreach: 42 participants (academic researchers, industry and representatives of user associations)

    Summary of the participation: presentation of the EasyTV project by Dr Pilar Orero.
