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
