PD points towards recertification:

Successful completion of the course entitles participants to 40 points towards NAATI recertification (Section 1.4 of NAATI Recertification Professional Development Catalogue)

About the course:

This short course focuses on the use of computer assisted translation (CAT). It is primarily intended for translators who have little or no experience with CAT (but do have general computer literacy). The course will provide an overview of the CAT tools: Wordfast Anywhere, SDL Trados 2014; Translation memory: creating a translation memory, working with one; Multiterm: creating a glossary. Participants will learn about these tools and their practical application to translating work. The licenced software is accessed at Monash University’s translation computer lab, so participants don’t need to provide their own computers or software. 

These professional development short courses are run with the support of the Department of Premier and Cabinet, State Government of Victoria.


Intended audience:

The course is aimed at practising translators who are already working in the industry. It is open to translators of all languages.
