Description:Today's translators and interpreters will not be replaced by machines, but rather, they will be replaced by other translators and interpreters using state-of-the art technologies. Be one of the latter.

This talk provides recommendations to keep pace with the changes of our instantly connected world and so avoid becoming professionally obsolete. You will understand some of the new tools that are becoming fundamental to our profession and hear about a new set of skills you need to develop to work in the global village of the 21st century.

Understand how technology has transformed our profession. Pledge to embrace the change, instead of opposing it. Learn the benefits of becoming tech-savvy. To stay in the loop of progress, translators and interpreters need to become part of the digital revolution. Our professional survival depends on our ability to adapt to the constant transformation in the means of communication.

Reference Material and integration of various glossaries into Trados 2015 Sep 29, 2015

Dear Mrs. Brauer,

Thank you very much for the great refeence material. Unfortunately I cannot open the PDF data in the folder "__MACOSX".
In addition, I would like to know how I can integrate various glossaries in banking and finance in Trados 2015 in an efficient way. Do you also know some glossaries for the language pairs German/Chinese or English/Chinese, especially in banking and finance. Thanks a lot.

Kind regards,

Weiwei Wang

Mac OSX file folder Sep 29, 2015

The designation MAC osx is a file folder....if you have the 3 PDF's in the zip file then you're all set. The contents in the MAc OSX file folder are just duplicates of those PDF's

Trados integration Sep 30, 2015

Dear Weiwei. Trados has several ways of integrating glossaries. I would recommend you contact their support line directly or go to their website to the help desk. Also, there are hundreds of forums of Trados-supporters There are several forums in ProZ where you could ask specifics. Unfortunately this session does not cover Trados in detail and it would take a lot of time to go over it, but there are many resources on internet and forums you can use. For example: http://www.proz.com/forum/sdl_trados_support-65.html

German Chinese glossaries Sep 30, 2015

Hello, Weiwel.

German-Chinese is a hard combination. I was able to find several links, not specifically to finance, but you can start your search there: (1) http://www.freebyte.com/dictionary/ (2) http://mymemory.translated.net/english/ (3) http://multilingualbooks.com/onlinedicts-german.html (4) http://www.chinacsrproject.org/Resources/Resource_List_EN.asp?LstFlt_D1=1 (5) http://www.proz.com/personal-glossary/123680?glossary=22757
