15 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module will deliver core perspectives in the use and usefulness of CAT tools and it is designed to enable students to become conversant with CAT tools used widely in the translation industry. Students will also receive teaching in relation to the use of Machine Translation and post-editing. By the end of the module we expect that students will be able to: i) Confidently use a CAT tool; ii) Distinguish the types of text for which the use of a CAT tool is indicated; and iii) Identify and understand the differences between CAT translations and MT.
