(27-28 November 2008, at the Holiday Inn Camden Lock, London). 
Supported by EAMT, ITI, IoL, LISA and TILP

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 translation services managers, translators, business managers,
researchers and language experts.  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
conference. The papers (and the presentations) should focus on the user aspects
of translation or translation-related software rather than on theoretical
issues. Presentations accompanied by demonstrations are especially welcome.
