When Translation Meets Technologies: Language Service Providers in the Digital Age (Phase 2)

Project: Research


While increasing the speed of the translation process, recent advances in translation technologies have raised some concerns such as lower social status of the profession and digital disruption. The project examines Language Service Providers’ (LSPs’) beliefs and behaviours surrounding the use of translation technologies in order to identify effective and sustainable human-technology interaction, which can be applied to the practice of translation.
This is a proposal for a second phase to the project. Based on the focus group data collected in the first phase at national level, the second phase will pursue emerging questions in each research member’s domain-specific areas at international level.
