Terminology mining from Eur-Lex corpora

Tweet The conference #TranslatingEurope Forum 2016 was held on October 27-28 in Brussels. Besides presentations, the conference included two sessions of mini-workshops: the idea was to present some practical aspect of translation in small group – three people at a time. The workshops included my submission on terminology mining. I realized from the start that participants won’t …

Tweet On Friday, May 22nd, during the memoQfest conference in Budapest, Kilgray officially released memoQ 2015. One of its new features is redesigned Dashboard view – the screen you see when you start the application.

Localizing iOS .strings files with memoQ

ios

One of the biggest buzzwords/trends in localization is currently “mobile”. And as the buzzwords go, this one is justified – there’s a lot of content being localized for mobile devices. And one of the important part of this content is the UI of mobile applications. If a developer wants to sell internationally, he/she should provide localized version of the app. This gives us a job, but also a challenge.

Raport z redakcji w kilka kliknięć

CTracker_icon

Ostatnio coraz częściej oprócz tłumaczenia zajmuję się redakcją. A po redakcji czasem trzeba udokumentować wprowadzone zmiany, zwłaszcza jeśli było ich dużo. Co prawda nowsze programy CAT dysponują funkcją śledzenia zmian (dostępna np. memoQ czy Trados Studio), to jednak przygotowanie raportu w formie czytelnej poza określonym programem, choć nieskomplikowane, jednak wymaga trochę pracy. Na szczęście istnieją narzędzia, które służą właśnie do obrazowania zmian między dwoma wersjami dokumentów dwujęzycznych.
