Meeting Description:

The first edition of the International Per-Fide Conference on Corpora &Translation is organised within the scope of the Per-Fide Project( and is entirelydevoted to the issues of compiling, exploring and applying (parallel)corpora to the field of translation. This event was not exclusivelyconceived for people working in the area of Natural LanguageProcessing. Instead, it aims to demonstrate that the compilation ofelectronic corpora (monolingual and bilingual, comparable and parallel)is not only useful to those that are already used to working withcorpora, but also to less experienced users, namely students, teachersand translation professionals. Indeed, once the alignment process hasbeen completed, parallel corpora can be processed in order to extractprobabilistic translation dictionaries, translation memories andexamples, bilingual terminology, among other resources. Thisconference cycle is intended to be an enriching and comprehensiveknowledge-sharing experience, providing concrete examples of howall these resources can be used by professional translators in theirdaily activity as well as by students and teachers to meet therequirements of translation teaching.

Please note that this conference is part of a more encompassing cycleof conferences that will be held annually and whose goal is to open aspace for debate, reflexion and (re)signification of corpus usage inseveral other fields, e.g. in language teaching.
