From Angeliki Petrits at the European Commission's representation in the UK:
We will be holding a talk on the IT tools used by European Commission translators at 14.30 on Wednesday 28 November at the EC Representation in the UK (Europe House, 32 Smith Square, London, SW1P 3 EU). Please find below more information on the presentation and details of how to register for the presentation.
The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Translation is one of the largest translation service in the world and produces over 2 million pages of translation per year. Markus Foti will present the tools and resources the European Commission provides for its translators to help them deal with this workload, from CAT tools to databases, and especially the Commission’s in-house machine translation project.
A translator for 13 years, Markus recently made the jump to the machine translation project, where he is supposed to bridge the gap between translators’ needs and IT technicians’ plans.
To attend this free presentation, please register in advance by e-mailing Agnieszka.PIELA at ext.ec.europa.eu putting "IT and translation" in the subject field.
