The globalization of the translation industry has accelerated the use of specialized software tools in response to constraints such as time, cost, consistency and team-working. This class offers an opportunity for hands-on exploration of a number of software tools, translation memory, machine translation, corpus creation/interrogation that are representative of applications widely used today by translators, both professional and non-professional.
