Translation technologies are tools to aid; they are not replacements for human translators. They are helpful devices that can change the way we work, taking over tasks that are tedious and repetitive, and leaving to us what we do best- using our mental process to make wise decisions. 

The workshop explains how CAT tools prove to be very valuable especially as far as the language elements in the project are concerned. Such a value can be optimized depending on the expertise of translators and project managers alike in dealing with CAT Tools. Knowing how to efficiently handle these tools turn them into an asset for professional translators and language service providers.

This workshop is designed for professional translators and translation studies students who want to quickly explore CAT Tools with the emphasis on Trados Studio 2021, so that they can start working productively with this leading translation system in the market from day one.
