(29-30 November 2007, at the Copthorne Tara Hotel, Kensington, London).

This conference focuses on the user's perspective of how computers/software is
used in translation. The conference series attracts a wide audience which
includes translators, business managers, researchers and language experts. Once
again, this year the conference will address the latest developments in

following conference attendees: industry, public administration, agencies,
freelancers and development.
