This book provides a practical introduction to a wide range of leading-edge computer-aided translation (CAT) tools including corpora and corpus analysis tools, terminology management and translation memory systems and localization tools that translators now need to understand and use in order to stay competitive in today's global market. Specific chapters describe tools such as optical character recognition and voice recognition systems, corpora and corpus analysis tools, terminology management and translation memory systems and localization tools. In addition to describing the tools themselves, this book also addresses issues such as how translators interact with CAT tools and what impact the use of technology may have on the translator's working life. Each chapter provides a clear explanation and illustrative examples of how the different technologies work, accompanied by an analysis of the benefits and drawbacks of using these tools in a translation environment. Key points are summarized at the end of each chapter and further reading is suggested.
