Important: Those who purchase a seat in advance may be able to pay an "early bird" or cheaper price, while those who confirm participation later or last minute, may likely have to pay a higher fee. In some training sessions a price increase based on the number of registrants may also apply, i.e. the first 15 registered pay one price, the next 10 pay a a slightly higher price etc.

Early payment is advised in order to secure participation and help reach the course minimum participation - unfortunately, courses may occasionally be cancelled or rescheduled, if the confirmed participation in advance is very low.

Description
Although computer-aided translation (CAT) tools are certainly more useful to translate technical texts, they can also help literary translators be more productive and improve the quality of their work. In this webinar we will discuss how literary translators can benefit from the use of such tools considering comfort/ergonomics, the possibility of creating a bilingual corpus for future searches, help to type faster and the ability to control the text as whole.

We will also challenge the claim that its use limits the translator’s freedom and creativity, and show options to work with these tools without having to invest too much money.
