Analyzing the Attitudes of Translation Students towards CAT (Computer-Aided Translation) Tools
Çetiner, Caner
Journal of Language and Linguistic Studies, v14 n1 p153-161 2018
Translation profession has witnessed some technological innovations in recent years. The triggering reason behind these innovations has been the ever-increasing workload. Translation tools came to be seen as an aid to handle this workload. To this end, emerging translation technologies have come to front. There are many studies that take professional translators' views about these technologies into consideration. However, the studies dealing with the acceptance of these tools by translation students or investigating their attitudes towards these tools are limited. In this study, translation students' attitudes towards translation technologies are analyzed with pre- and post-test questionnaires based on some research questions. The analysis shows that there are some statistically significant differences between pre- and post-test scores obtained with the questionnaires applied before and after the training. This result supports the view that students develop a positive attitude after they are taught the benefits of using computer-aided translation tools and more classes should be allocated for translation technologies in translation training programs.
