Eurotradus workshop for lecturers of Lithuanian universities
As CAT tools have become an integral part of the global translation market, all translation professionals should be able to use them. In its continuous collaboration with Lithuanian higher education institutions, the Eurotradus translation company has always given extra weight to the importance of technologies. Eurotradus invited lecturers from major Lithuanian universities to a practical workshop intended to shed some light on the usage of web-based CAT tools. On 24 January 2017, representatives of Vilnius University, Kaunas University of Technology and Mykolas Romeris University participated in the workshop. They quickly learnt the principles of modern CAT tools and undertook to apply them for lectures and homework. Workshop participants were able to witness that one can learn how to use a CAT tool in just a matter of several hours. The main advantage of web-based CAT tools is that they work in a web browser without even needing to be installed on a computer, which makes it very easy for students to translate – no matter where they are, no matter what device they use.
