Message 1: translating in Germany

Subject: translating in Germany

To whom it concerns,

I am a student of computer science, linguistics and German at Trinity
College, Dublin, Ireland. I graduate in May 1994 with a BA in these
subjects. I am very interested in becoming involved in translation and
would like to do a masters in translation in Germany. Up until now I
haven't had much luck finding out, first of all if this is possible, and
secondly, where I could do such a course. I was wondering if you may
have any information that could help me. I would be very grateful for a
quick reply, either way.

Thanking you,

Eilis Hudson

Subject: Query: test suite evaluation


I am collecting material for a research project on NLP evaluation.
What we are looking for is diagnostic test material and literature on
test suites and test suite evaluation. Any material, references or
suggestions will be welcome.

Thanks,

Message 3: Mac pitch tracking software

From: Dr Judy L Delin <jld1stirling.ac.uk>
Subject: Mac pitch tracking software

I am currently pricing various things for doing pitch tracking on a Mac,
using good quality audio (not DAT) tape as input. I'd be very
grateful to hear from anyone who has relevant experience
and tips. My machine is a Quadra 660AV which has a built-in digitiser.
Here begins my first worry: one of my possibilities is a piece of kit
called SoundScope, which has lots of bells and whistles, and which the
company distributing it in the UK assure me will run on the Quadra
without inserting an additional board. I'd like to make extra sure
of this, but also would love to know of anything else (cheaper?) that
will do the trick....

Any replies gratefully received, and ultimately summarised to the net
(unless you'd prefer not to be quoted!)

Best wishes

Message 4: HELP WITH LANGUAGE QUESTION

Date: 10 Nov 1993 16:10:00 -0500HELP WITH LANGUAGE QUESTION
From: "Bettie T. Puckett 5558" <BPUCKETTa1.utmem.edu>
Subject: HELP WITH LANGUAGE QUESTION

 In an attempt to awaken awareness, I raised the issue of gender neutral
 language in a recent meeting. Attendees focused on one word:
 "chairman." Is there someone out there who can give me the origin and
 (perhaps) the demise of the word chairman? Yes, I realize that
 chairman is a bona fide word; however, so is chairwoman and chair (when
 indicating holder of office, etc.).

 any help available out there?
