In this three-hour workshop, open to translators of all languages, we will:
· Discuss the basic concepts of CAT tools, such as translation memories, term bases, and quality assurance;
· present several of the most popular CAT tools, as well as their common and differentiating characteristics;
· jump in for a bit of hands-on experience with the free version of Memsource, so that you’ll be able to start using this tool for your translations as soon as you finish the workshop!
