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.
4 October 2016, Vilnius. At the “Technopelnas 2016” conference, the CEO of the EUROTRADUS translation company shared his practical experience of using modern technologies in daily business.
In our work with international clients and the world’s leading technology companies, we are always in step with the most advanced technologies. We implement large-scale and complex projects using modern project management and translation memory systems which optimise our processes, save time, and reduce costs.
The “Technopelnas 2016” (Technoprofit 2016) conference held by Verslo Žinios, a leading business news portal and newspaper, invited the heads of small and medium-sized enterprises. The event was intended to show the potential of information technologies to business companies, reveal what’s new in the field, and introduce the most high-tech companies in Lithuania. The event is a venue to gain practical insights from the representatives of the savviest companies that invest in technology solutions.
Eurotradus translation agency is among the most successful and fastest growing companies in Lithuania. Prestigious Gazelle Nominations and Awards are presented by the leading Lithuanian business newspaper Verslo Žinios (‘Business News’) together with the State Tax Authority, which also means that the companies are distinguished by their business transparency.
In 2015, EUROTRADUS familiarized future graduates with the latest trends in the translation market. We organized lectures and workshops in the three biggest Lithuanian universities. Now we have moved one step forward, inviting students to visit us.
Students of Vilnius University and Kaunas Technology University were invited to come to our office in Vilnius. We discussed the profession of the translator in general: flexibility, existing stereotypes, finding an appropriate balance between translation speed and quality and selection procedures for translators.
The importance of technologies in today’s translation business was emphasized. We presented a modern process of project management and talked about quality requirements for translation services. Needless to say, we introduced students to Computer-Assisted Translation tools, Quality Assurance tools and Machine Translation software. The students were encouraged to use the translation technologies from the very beginning of their studies.
Moreover, this year we accepted five students for an internship in our company.

Globalization and Localization Association GALA has published an article about cooperation between the Eurotradus translation company and Lithuanian universities.

The Lithuanian translation company Eurotradus has decided to take responsibility and change the situation by sharing its knowledge with Lithuanian students and lecturers. For more information see the GALA article Working with Universities – Investing in the Future.
In March–April 2015 representatives of the EUROTRADUS translation company introduced students and lecturers of Vilnius University, Mykolas Romeris University and Kaunas University of Technology to Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools and Machine Translation software and the possibilities for using them.
More than fifty students and lecturers from the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree Translation and Localisation programmes attended the lectures at each university. They learnt about the history and development of translation technology and current trends. Workshops on the use of CAT tools were also arranged. There were discussions with university lecturers concerning the possibility of making wider use of CAT tools during the education process.
We will continue our cooperation with Lithuanian higher education institutions in order to familiarize future graduates with the latest trends in the translation market.
