MT Google Sep 30, 2013

There is one big & basic problem with MT - and it is the secrecy required by the most customers... What to do with it?

I don't see a legitimate reason why CAT tools and MT Sep 30, 2013

should not be ignored by the translation theory -- they are not a part of linguistics, but rather a part of some support services within the same realm as word processing.

MT for professional purposes -- "Just Close it and Forget it".

MT for any other purposes -- "Let's Have Fun."

Post-session Q&A? Sep 30, 2013

Has anyone seen where the post-session Q&A has disappeared to?
I thought it would appear on the same page as the session, but it's not here.....

I do not thing that we should "just close and forget" CAT tools. They are sometimes a problem, but are very useful when especially a translation between two languages of the same language group is concerned.
