SDL Trados 2017: Let’s individually translate a document and learn some skills!

This presentation will give you some of the tools and features included in the SDL Trados 2017 version. Each individual will translate a document in the language pair of their choosing. After translation, you will be able to compare your translation with a version that has already been completed in your language.


Let’s simplify: Practical technology in the interpretation world

This session will give you an opportunity to see and use some of the tools that are available in the interpretation and translation world. We will discover how and when it would be helpful to use digital recorders, recording software, VRI and OPI technology, and transmitters and receivers.
