Meeting Description:

Translating and the Computer (TC) is a conference which focuses on the user aspects of translation and translation-related software. It serves as a unique and beneficial meeting point for a wide audience including translators from large multinational institutions such as the EU and UN, from translation agencies across the world but also freelance translators, tools and technology developers, language experts, software vendors, business managers, researchers and academics. In addition to presentations on current issues of translation and translation technology, the conference features panel and user group discussions on topics of interest to the conference audience.

Call for Papers:

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of a maximum of 750 words of the paper they would like to present, together with a short 200-word abstract and short biography. While the extended abstract is limited to 750 words (longer papers will not be considered), it should provide sufficient information to allow evaluation of the submission by the committee.
