English to Maltese

Hi everyone,

I am a Maltese student currently doing a Master in Translation at the University of Malta. At the moment I am doing a research and I thought maybe I would find some help here from you. Especially, from those who are Maltese freelance translators.

Basically, I am trying to find whether Maltese freelance translators have enough CAT resources to help them when translating in Maltese. The questions I would like to pose are:

At the moment is it difficult to find CAT resources to help you in your job?

Is there a good maltese terminology to make use of?

Is it worth it to make use of machine translation? If there isn't one specifically with Maltese involved, how do you cope?

I would really appreciate anyone who could answer these questions I put forward because I think it would be a good kick off for the research I'm doing. But, apart from this, I am curious about how much my native language (Maltese) is portrayed in CAT resources. And, whether it needs to be updated more for its own development and for future maltese translators.

Thsnk a lot,
Tiziana Caruana
