This conference focuses on the user's perspective of how computers/software
are used in translation. The conference series attracts a wide audience
which includes translators, business managers, researchers and language

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.

This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented at the

theoretical issues. Presentations accompanied by demonstrations are
especially welcome.

- the Internet and translation aids/services
- application of XML tools and XML standards
- Project Management
- quality assurance tools
- workflow systems
- resources for translation including corpora
