Room: Forth Room

Description:
My session will consist of a "recycled" and updated version of my presentation given in Cracow last year. Main topic:

How to use search engines to obtain results valid from a translator's/interpreter's perspective (using Google as an example)

Points to be considered/discussed:
- The importance of doing one's own research as a translator/language service provider
- Available search features
- Sources relevant to our profession
- Source credibility and reliability - how to tell (supported by practical examples)
- Discussion - the pros and cons of "googling"
- Beyond Google - brief overview of other searchable resources

Speaker:
Steffen Walter (Germany)

Bio: Having obtained a "Diplom-Dolmetscher" degree (M.A. in Interpretation) from Humboldt University, Berlin, I worked for about three years as an in-house translator/interpreter with the Berlin-based Central European subsidiary of Tarmac Ltd, one of the leading UK building materials producers, before going fully freelance in October 2003.
I serve as a (co-)moderator of the German and English>German KudoZ communities whilst also assisting with the moderation/management of the Jobs/Blue Board area.
