Are you tired of translating the same sentence you know you’ve translated before? Have you ever come across a specialized term you know you’ve translated before but can’t remember where? Do you translate the same types of document, that often contain the same or almost the same text? Then this workshop is for you!

This is an INTRODUCTORY-level workshop on memoQ. It is meant for people who have little to no
experience with CAT tools, and who are curious about how a CAT tool could improve their productivity
and accuracy, and/or for people who have been holding back on learning how to use a CAT tool, because it seems daunting to get started.

The workshop will use MemoQ as the example CAT tool, but most
functions shown will be similar in other CAT tools.

Topics to be covered:

  • Ways a CAT tool can increase your productivity & accuracy
  • What types of documents can be input into a CAT tool
  • How a set up a project and get started
  • How to use a TM (translation memory)
  • How to use a term base (glossary)
  • Creating a two-column bilingual document for review
  • Concordance
