THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS: WHY YOU NEED TO START USING CORPUS TO LOCALIZE AND TRANSLATE BETTER

 
Do you know what a CORPUS is? Have you ever used one? Have you ever felt stuck with a simple phrase in your source language where you can’t find an equivalent that runs as smoothly as your original? If your answer is no to the first two questions, but yes to the third, this presentation may be right up your alley.
Ana will describe what a corpus is, and how it can become one of the most valuable—and free—tools for translators when dictionaries, glossaries, Google and other terminological resources can’t help in finding a seamless, elegant translation. She will introduce a few monolingual and multilingual corpora in various languages that are available online, and show how to conduct a corpus search. She will show with examples how a simple, quick search can help translators’ productivity dramatically. English and Spanish examples will be given, but the talk will also be beneficial to linguists working with other languages.
