In order to respond to the technological development in the field
of translation, which has important effects on the professional
profile of translators and interpreters, a curriculum for
Linguistic Data Processing and Machine(-Aided) Translation has
been developed and implemented at the Department of Applied
Linguistics, Translating, and Interpreting at the University of
Saarbruecken and is now an integral part of the degree courses for
translators and interpreters.

The following subjects are treated within this component of the
training programme:

- Theoretical foundations of Linguistic Data Processing taking
into account the specific requirements of the activities of
translating and interpreting.

- Possibilities, functions and performance of word-processing
systems, systems for terminology management as well as systems
for machine-aided translation and machine translation.

- Practical work with word-processing systems, terminology data
bases and machine(-aided) translation systems.

- Problems and possibilities of pre- and post-editing of texts
and encoding, up-dating and management of dictionaries in the
framework of machine translation as well as computer-aided
terminology work.

These questions are not only dealt with in courses within the
training programme, but are also discussed in more detail in the
framework of diploma theses written by students at the end of
their studies.

The series "Saarbruecker Studien zu Sprachdatenverarbeitung und
Uebersetzen" (Saarbruecken Studies on Linguistic Data Processing
and Translating) will be published, in order to make available for
those interested in these fields some selected diploma theses as
well as other reports or papers dealing with machine(-aided)
translation and related subjects.

In September 1995, the following four volumes will be published:

Vol. 1: Thilo Schueller: Integrierte Uebersetzungssysteme.1994.

systems are compared on the basis of various translation
