ITTM001 Компютърно-подпомогнат превод и локализация


Computer-assisted translation and interpreting are increasingly becoming synonyms not only of high-quality translation and interpreting in the efficient work of translation/interpretation agencies, but also of modern translation/interpretation itself. The course presents the main tools used in machine-aided translation and interpreting and offers hands-on experience in them. Students will become familiar with the processes of segmentation and indexation, with the use of concordancers and aligners. They will be taught to combine different tools, to create their own translation memories and glossaries and to re-use resources. Tools for interpreting and localisation tools will be outlined as well.
