Overview

This textbook provides an account of translation technology, its applications and capabilities. Major developments from North America, Europe and Asia are described, including developments in uses and users of the technology. The book is essential for students in translating courses and professional translators wishing to be brought up-to-date or to prepare for a new aspect of their work.
