How to study? Jun 21

I'm not sure what you mean but if you're looking for study programmes then Googling for the subject plus university comes up with a fair few Master's programmes. As for companies, you could start with all those who are developing machine translation software.

I did some work with one of the biggest MT developers a while back, after a very successful and interesting time doing their annotations. I found the work fascinating but way over my head as I've never studied it. But I couldn't have carried on even if I'd been up to it: they were paying less than the minimum wage locally, let alone a decent rate for a freelancer who has all sorts of expenses. So I would expect you to have a great choice of interesting but low paid / unpaid internships, but you might find it just a little difficult to get any decent ROI on your studies. But maybe I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I hope so, as that was downright insulting.
