Introducing students to the daily routine of the translation business

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.

EUROTRADUS presents the latest translation technologies at Lithuanian universities

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.
