Description
From the 4th until the 8th of September 2017, University of Leuven (KU Leuven) organises the 2nd International Translation Technology Summer School for language professionals who are looking for a practice-oriented and state-of-the-art introduction to translation and localisation processes, issues and tools. In the last decades, technology has become an absolute necessity in meeting the global translation and communication needs. To increase their employability, the professionals selling translation services need to become tech-savvy and digitally literate. The market offers a myriad of tools and resources that can be used in every step of the translation process: from the moment of quoting until the delivery step. But how can one know which tools and resources to include in their toolbox to optimise their translation/localisation workflow? During this one-week event, experienced trainers and experts from both the academic and the commercial world will answer this question through presentations, hands-on workshops, and use case scenarios.
