This module introduces students to a range of technologies that are used on a daily basis by professional translators. It gives students a foundational understanding of the mechanics of each form of technology, and then gives students the chance to familiarise themselves with the practicalities of the technology through practical exercises. This module is predominantly hands-on in nature, and heavily self-guided. It is assessed with a practical project in which each students acts both as a translator, and as a project manager for another student in the completion of a specific task.
