Thursday, 28 February 2019, 7 for 7.30pm

Quality Assurance for Translators with Juliet Macan

Venue: The Chapel pub, 48 Chapel St, Marylebone, London NW1 5DP

Travel: Edgware Road

Cost: Free for LRG Members; £5 for non-members

CPD: 2 hours

Juliet Macan, a veteran (since 1994) when it comes to computer-assisted translation (CAT) tools, will share her vast knowledge about software which is specifically designed to help users improve the quality of their translations (e.g. Error Spy, QA Distiller and ApSIC XBench but also integrated features in memoQ and SDL Trados Studio). There will be time for questions and discussion.

Please note that this event is NOT about how to assure the quality of a translation per se – it is about using specialist software that can assist the translator in checking specific aspects of a translation (e.g. correct transfer of numbers from source to target, completeness of the translation [have all sentences been translated] etc.).

We are privileged to have Juliet visit us and share her extensive knowledge with us. The LRG Committee
