Dear all translators,

I am considering providing a seminar on Machine Translation (MT) software as a productivity tool from the point of view of professional translators.

I would plan to cover the following topics:
* using MT tools versus using TM tools (a comparative and combination perspective)
* how MT can fit into the traditional translation workflow
* MT dictionary building principles
* MT postediting
* hands-on practical examples from real production texts in using 1 or more commercially available professional/expert level MT software programs. Participants could bring their own sample texts as well.
* Question/Answer time about MT software/systems

If you are interested in such a seminar, please send me an email through my Proz profile with one or more of the following 3 subject lines:

Yes, Paris MT seminar
(send message with this title if you would be interested and could try to attend a seminar in Paris)

Yes, non-Paris on-site MT seminar
(send message with this title if there are 1 or other cities other than Paris where you would be interested in attending an on-site seminar. Please indicate the names of the cities in the body of the message)

Yes, MT Webinar
(send message with this title if you would be interested in attending via the web, such as Webex or Netmeeting )

Based on the responses, I'll investigate the logistics of scheduling such a seminar (or set of seminars) for the professional translator audience.
