"Computers will never replace translators, but translators that use computers will replace translators that don't." (Dr Ray Clfford, US)

How important/useful are computer tools? This session looks at a wide range of tools that can benefit translators and boost productivity - both quantity and quality. The main topics are: - speech recognition (pros and cons) - useful hardware - electronic dictionaries, reference books etc - translation memory (unexpected advantages) - business tools, project management, finance - editing - PDF (summary) - web tools - RSS

Peter Linton (United Kingdom)

Bio: After a lifetime in other careers (journalism, IT), I became a translator 5 years ago, also doing a couple of postgraduate translation courses on the way.

Because of my IT background, I have a particular interest in computer tools, and their productivity benefits. I will be talking (in English) about five different types of tools, particularly speech recognition, I will discuss the pros and cons, in order to give you some ideas for what you might find useful.

Peter volunteers to moderate the Swedish>English community.

Ich verstehe Deutsch ziemlich gut. Sie können ruhig Fragen auf Deutsch stellen. Aber ich werde wahrscheinlich auf Englisch antworten. member: Peter Linton
