This conference focuses on the user's perspective of how computers/software is used in translation. The conference series attracts a wide audience which includes translation services managers, translators, business managers, researchers and language experts. Once again, this year the conference will address the latest developments in translation (and translation-related) software. It will address the needs of the following conference attendees: industry, public administration, agencies, freelancers and development.

The papers (and the presentations) should focus on the user aspects of translation or translation-related software rather than on theoretical issues. Presentations accompanied by demonstrations are especially welcome.
