Hello there, I'm launching a short survey on translation tools and resources with an aim to take a snapshot of the current habits and preferences of translation professionals.
The results will be presented at the Knowledge Cafe event during the Translating and the Computer 34 Conference, on Friday, 30 November 2012 (http://www.aslib.co.uk/conferences/tc_2012/index.htm ).

The results will also be used as a basis for developing a Professional Development programme for the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI) and will also provide some background data for my PhD.

The survey will not take more than 10 minutes to complete and I will be most grateful for your time.

Best regards,
Joanna

Hi all!

I just wanted to let you know that I will be closing this questionnaire at the end of this month so if you missed it or haven't had the time to do it yet, please do spare 10 minutes of your precious time.

I have had a tremendous response and I have received almost 500 full responses from all over the world! It would be great to cross the magic number of 500!

I would like to say thank you to all contributors for taking the time to fill the questionaire and for all the kind words I have received.

All respondents who have provided an e-mail address will receive a copy of the results, but in the meantime, if you would like to receive a pdf copy of the questionnaire to research the tools/resources listed in it, please do feel free to contact me at: j.gough@surrey.ac.uk.

With kindest regards,
Joanna

Walter, Anna and everyone who has contributed to this questionnaire - thank you so much for your input - very appreciated!

I'll be closing the survey tomorrow night, so if any of you haven't had a chance to coplete it yet, please do so - it really is a short survey and hopefully you can find some tools and resources that you have not heard of before.

Many thanks!
Joanna
