Thursday (1:45-5:00pm)
Translation Support Tools Forum
Presenter: Alan K. Melby

Last year in Atlanta, many of you attended the Translation Support Tools Forum and others have subsequently looked at the documents produced for that forum. These documents include the Eight Types of Translation Technology, which ATA's Translation and Computers Committee has been using as a benchmark at ATA conferences for several years, and the ATA Translation Support Tools Forum Handout, a compilation of the questionnaire responses from translation software vendors and/or representatives that compare product features and capabilities.

In preparation for this year's edition of the Tools forum, organized by the ATA TAC (Translation and Computers) committee, please send in suggestions for questions that should be asked of the vendors. These questions can be in two categories: (1) general questions that all vendors could answer in order to facilitate comparisons among them by ATA members; and (2) tool-specific questions by existing users - questions they have had trouble finding answers to by calling or e-mailing the vendor.

Please send these questions to Alan K. Melby (AKM), chair of the ATA TAC at the following address: atatacakm@yahoo.com.
