Call for abstracts & posters

The Translating and the Computer (TC) conference has emerged as a leading forum for users, developers and vendors of Translation Technology tools, being a distinctive event for discussing the latest developments. It is an annual meeting where translators, researchers and business people, from translation companies, international organisations, universities and research labs, as well as freelance professionals, exchange ideas and discuss hot topics.

The TC conference takes the form of presentations as well as posters and also features panel discussions and workshops. If you or a colleague have something interesting to contribute, this call invites you to consider submitting an extended abstract of a paper or poster for the TC37 conference.
