Organised by:
MTI Programme

The course will cover the use of MemoQ, both desktop version and online editor, in single-user and multi-user scenarios. You will learn how to create your own translation projects, how to import various types of documents and evaluate the amount work based on the available resources. We will cover the efficient use of the translation editor and leveraging various linguistic resources like translation memories, parallel corpora, terminology management in MemoQ and helpful automation options, including machine translation. Since the quality of delivered translation is very important, available QA options and workflows will be covered. You will learn how to exchange bilingual documents and resources with other linguists and how to make the most of this exchange. The last part of the course will concern the workflows in server-based environments (e.g. translation agency, enterprise): you will learn how to accept, perform and deliver translations or revisions provided as packages or online projects.
