|SCATE, a new CAT prototype
Iulianna van der Lek-Ciudin, KU Leuven en Sven Coppers, UHasselt
During this interactive session we provide the final results of the research we undertook within the SCATE (Smart-Computer Aided Translation Environment) research project. The participants will have the opportunity to test the SCATE translation interface themselves provided they have their own laptops and access to the internet.
The participants should bring their own laptops and need an internet connection to test the prototype!
Target audience: translators, project managers, translation software developers.
Iulianna van der Lek-Ciudin is a predoctoral researcher and lecturer in computer-assisted translation. As a researcher, she has been investigating usability issues in current translation environments, translators’ methods of acquiring terminology and human factors in machine translation quality evaluation. Iulianna is also collaborating with INSTB members to investigate the impact of collaborative translation projects on the students’ soft skills in simulated translation bureau’s. As a certified CAT tools specialist, she is teaching current and emerging tools both at KU Leuven (BE) and Leiden Universities(NL). Iulianna has been recently appointed Academic Adviser for JIAMCATT at the European Commission. Last but not least, Iulianna is actively involved in community projects, such as the revival of the eCoLo (electroninc content localization) training platform and the development of the Language Technology Wiki.
Sven Coppers studied computer science at Hasselt University (UHasselt) and is interested in various aspects of Human Computer Interaction, such as 2D and 3D visualizations, user-centered software engineering, context-awareness and intelligibility (comprehensibility). Currently, he is doing a PhD about making Context-aware Internet-of-things applications more understandable and controllable for end-users. In addition, he is working on user interfaces for translation environment within the SCATE project, with a focus on usability, intelligibility, customization and collaboration.
