Richard Sadowsky’s very popular Tools for the Non-Technical Translator (There should be enough seats this time:))

Sat. Oct. 23, 2010, 1:30 p.m. – 4:00 Kobe International House, Room 401 兵庫県神戸市中央区御幸通8丁目1番6号 5 min. walk south on Flower Road from Sannomiya Station, east side

There will be a dinner afterwards from 5 until 7.30 at 土筆んぼう 神戸国際会館前店 It’s directly to the south of the 国際会館 above the Golden Arches Diner on the 3rd floor.

Tools for the Non-Technical Translator (Presenter: Richard Sadowsky) This session will focus primarily on software tools and techniques for helping a translator to work more smoothly and efficiently, with lots of actual demonstration; covering things like abbreviation expansion software, electronic dictionary use, and Google search techniques. Although the demo will be Mac OS-based, the concepts should be universally applicable. CAT (Computer Aided Translation) tools will NOT be covered. There will be a demonstration of MacSpeech Dictate, essential Firefox plug-ins, keyboard shortcuts for repetitive actions (macros), and other “in the trenches at the keyboard” kind of stuff. —
