From the 29th of August till the 2nd of September 2016, University of Leuven (KU Leuven) organizes the 1st International Translation Technology Summer School for language professionals who are looking for a practice-oriented and state-of-the-art introduction to translation and localization issues and tools. In the last decades, technology has become an absolute necessity in meeting the global translation and communication needs. To increase their employability, the professionals selling translation services need to become tech-savvy and digital literate. The market offers a myriad of tools and resources that can be used in every step of the translation process: from the moment of quoting until the delivery step. But how can one know which tools and resources to include in their toolbox to optimize their translation/localization workflow? During this one-week event, experienced trainers and experts from both the academic and the commercial world will answer this question through presentations, hands-on workshops, and use case scenarios.
