translators would be lost without computers. Apart from helping with research
and word processing, several other computer programmes support the
translator's work. Below you will find a list of useful programmes:
|Programmes for software
select the pieces of text to be translated (called strings) from the source
code of a programme and display them separately. Now these
"strings" from the original file can be translated independently
from the source code. Afterwards, the programmes will reinsert the
translation into the source code.
programmes help translators build terminology databases, which can be used
for future translations.
|Translation Memory Programmes|
These programmes save complete translations
so that already translated passages, words or phrases, once they are found in
other texts, are displayed as suggestions and can be re-used.
