Integrating Computer-Assisted Translation Tools into Language Learning
Fernández-Parra, María
Although Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tools play an important role in the curriculum in many university translator training programmes, they are seldom used in the context of learning a language, as a good command of a language is needed before starting to translate. Since many institutions often have translator-training programmes as well as language-learning programmes within one department or school, this paper explores the possibilities of expanding the usefulness of CAT tools from the Translation curriculum into the Foreign Language Learning curriculum. While it is not expected that CAT tools will replace any other methods of language learning, this paper hopes to show that CAT tools can nevertheless contribute to enhance the language learning experience.
