GS 4302 - Computer Aided Translation (CAT): An Introduction to Software for Translators
This course provides an introduction to various types of Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools, including translation memory software and translation QA tools. Translation theory or field-specific terminology are not covered. Students become familiar with the concept of translation memory, learn to use the main features (create, import, export, analyze, clean up) of some of the applications available, and use translation memory in the translation process as necessary to create a translation project workflow from start to end. Students also learn to use translation QA tools to revise and perfect translations drafted using translation memory tools. This course may be taken concurrently with GS 4300: Foundations of Translation.
