I love MemSource

Celia Rico Catedrática Tecnologías de la Traducción, Universidad Europea Blog Publicado 27 Septiembre 2016

As a lecturer in Translation Technology I feel it is my duty to keep up to date with the latest developments in the industry. Yes, this is a difficult task since most of the times the industry runs faster than the academy, which means that even if I feel the responsibility to provide my translation students with hands-on practice in what the professional market is demanding, it is not always easy to find the opportunity to implement software in our labs right-away.

At the department of Translation at the Universidad Europea, our students get training in the leading translation software which, traditionally, is installed in our computer labs by the IT department. Now that Translation Technology has turned to the cloud we also have to progress towards it.

And this is what I was thinking about just last week, when I was approached by MemSource team offering my university the possibility of joining their Academic Programme. This is what it looks like:

“Both teachers and students can access their accounts from wherever they want—from home, school, a laptop, etc.—without the need of installing any software.

Apart from that, you do not have to send your students any files or e-mails, you can just assign them tasks via Memsource, attach needed files (TMs, TBs...) and the system will notify them. When they work on their projects, you see their progress and you get the results directly in your interface. All your data is stored in one place and is up-to-date all the time. If you want your students to get hands-on experience with project management, you can create project manager accounts for them and let them create their own projects, TMs, TBs, etc.”

So we joined the program and guess what? It is exactly  as they say!

Now we can use all the abilities of Cloud technology in our courses on Translation at Universidad Europea and our students get the opportunity to simulate jobs both as project managers and translators, build their own translation memories, and even use machine translation engines in combination with other tools. Our students are getting real-world experience with the same tools professional translators use. And this makes a difference.
