Call for papers  (now closed)

AsLing (the International Association for Advancement in Language Technology) is delighted to announce the forthcoming 40th annual Translating and the Computer Conference (TC40).

The TC conference series is a leading forum for users, developers and vendors of Translation Technology tools to present and discuss latest developments and practices. It is a distinctive event where translators, interpreters, researchers and business people from translation companies, international organisations, universities and research labs as well as freelance professionals and representatives of language service providers interact, exchange ideas and discuss current trends.

The TC conference takes the form of peer-reviewed presentations and posters and features panel discussions and workshops.

Conference topics

Contributions are invited on any topic related to the technology used in translation and interpreting, including, but not limited to CAT tools (e.g. Translation Memory (TM) systems), Terminology Management, Machine Translation (incl. neural Machine Translation (NMT); rule-based MT; statistical Machine Translation (SMT); use of MT; integration of MT in TM systems; quality assessment; post-editing; customisation and MT engine training), Quality Control, Interoperability, Natural Language Processing for translation and interpreting as well as Localisation, Translation Workflow and management. Other important topics are training (including university translation programmes and the rapidly changing translation industry), tools and resources for translators, how to facilitate collaboration between translators and translation companies, and mobile technologies to support translators’ and interpreters’ work. The conference seeks contributions to help us continue to pursue last year’s focus on how interpreters can be supported by new and evolving tools.
