COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Translation Technologies intends to introduce translators to technologies used in the translation industry and to provide experiential learning on Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) tools, Machine Translation, Translation Memory and Translation Management Systems. Translation technologies have increased in importance for product marketing in the globalized world, therefore, we will analyze translators’ strategies to capture the limits or liberties in producing local sounding texts, to determine how technologies can better serve translators and end users of translation, and to identify emerging trends and possibilities in the translation industry. This course will allow students to work with and develop translation technology, translation memory, machine translation, and artificial intelligence in reshaping the translation industry. We will evaluate and adapt the technical and linguistic elements used by translators to understand the core of the target culture and to close the cultural gap, which persists in the localized version and the need for a deeper approach and conceptualization of the purpose of technical translation.
