The Magic of Automation

Learn how automation can give you more time to focus on what you love most about your translation and interpreting business.

So much of our day is spent on repetitive tasks—copying terms from a PDF document to an Excel worksheet, finding repetitions in your translation environment tool, changing capitalization, and much more. If only there was a better way to do these things so that you had more time for the creative part of translation and interpreting!

Enter AutoHotkey, a free tool that makes automating computer tasks seem like magic.

In this second part of a two-part webinar, you will further explore what is possible with AutoHotkey. We will build on the content discussed in Part 1 and take your automation to the next level, while still keeping it simple enough so that you do not need any previous programming experience.

You will then be able to do the all-too-familiar tasks much quicker. Time is money, and now you can learn how to save time to focus on doing what you love and growing your translation and interpreting business.

What will you learn?

  1. How to automate mouse clicks
  2. How to quickly open commonly used folders and programs
  3. How to activate windows
  4. How to use loops to run an action sequence several times
  5. How to find help when building your macros
