Course Aims

This course aims at introducing students to some commonly used computer-aided translation tools and technology (e.g. term banks, translation memory, oncordance, corpus processing tools, etc.), with special focus on the practical aspects of their design and development.  Students will acquire hands-on experience for/via developing prototype systems or self-contained modules of one or more of such tools.  Basic programming concepts and techniques will be covered to enable students to write simple programs, and to implement simple systems through a series of guided exercises.
