From Scattered Documents to Valuable Translation Material: The Advantage of CAT Alignment Tools
This webinar is targeted at translators, project managers and TM administrators who would like to make the most of their bilingual material in any language. We will start with a pair of files (source and target) and will take a look at the process of turning them into a group of translation segments that are then converted into an export/import file for use in a variety of translation projects. During this 50-minute session, we will learn how to manage the on-screen content, how to use the CAT tool’s features and how to leverage some shortcuts to simplify the process. We will briefly comment on how to import/export the TM material and will learn some tips and tricks to make our content as versatile as possible.
We will be using open-source software that is easy to download and install. No license fees are required. System requirements: Windows XP or later (preferably W7 or later), Microsoft Office, some free disk space —not a bunch, though.
