Abstract


In the modern translation industry, all actors involved in the translation process communicate and collaborate increasingly – and oftentimes entirely – online using modern computer-assisted translation and project management software solutions.New translation technology needs new approaches to translator education and the Online Computer-Assisted Translation Classroom was designed to address this gap. Students are taught how to use the latest translation technology through hands-on remote software use and collaborative translation exercises. This article looks at the pedagogy of online translation teaching. It specifically discusses the teaching of translation technology and terminology management, drawing on process-oriented approaches to translator training and the method of cooperative translation.
