 1998 EAMT WORKSHOP 

 Geneva, 2-3 April 1998 

 Translation Technology:
 Integration in the Workflow Environment 


Translation technology is maturing, becoming an increasingly viable
option for companies and organizations looking for ways to improve their
multilingual document management capabilities. However, there are still
many hurdles remaining before translation support software can be
universally adopted within the professional translation environment. The
EAMT '98 Workshop will be an ideal opportunity for translators, document
managers, software localization engineers and linguists to learn more
about translation technology, one of the most fascinating branches of
the software world, and to discuss with others when to use the
technology and when not. 

This workshop follows up two successful workshops in Vienna in August
1996 and in Copenhagen in May 1997. Its theme is the practical use and
integration of machine translation and computer-based translation tools
in the workflow of a variety of organisations. The two-day workshop will
be held at the World Health Organization in Geneva, starting at 9.30 on
April 2. 

The EAMT '98 Workshop will be the only international MT-specific event
taking place this year in Europe. The EAMT Organizing Committee has
adopted a structure designed to maximize the interactive exchange of
practical knowledge among the participants. The workshop will include
two discussion sessions when participants will have ample opportunity
for group discussion, for questioning speakers more fully, and for
finding out how these tools will help them in their own situations. 

Please note: the 1998 General Assembly of EAMT will be held in the
afternoon of April 2, starting at 16.45.
