Message 1: Translating and the Computer

Subject: Translating and the Computer

 21st Conference "Translating and the Computer"
 10-11 November 1999, London

Supported by: ITI, EAMT, IAMT, BCS

The annual conference "Translating and the Computer" has been
an important forum for Machine Translation and Translation Aids
users over the past 20 years. The conference is one of the few
international events which focuses on the user aspects of translation
software and as such has been particularly beneficial to a very wide
audience including translators, business managers, researchers and
language experts.

Against the background of an increasingly multilingual society and
the all-encompassing impact of information technology, this year's
conference will address the latest developments in translation (and 
translation-related) software. 

This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented
at the conference. The papers (and the presentations) should focus on
the user aspects of translation or translation-related software rather
than on research and development issues. Presentations accompanied by
demonstrations are especially welcome.


The range of conference topics includes (but is not limited to)

- use of Machine Translation (MT) systems
- machine-aided translation and translation aids
- memory based translation
- controlled languages and their use in MT
- speech translation
- terminology
- localisation
- translation aids for minority languages
- multilingual document management/workflow
- experience of companies using translation software
- translating and the computer: the new millennium challenges
- the Internet and translation aids
