Explore opportunities and pitfalls in software text translations.

We’ll discuss software architecture, dealing with legacy systems, and file formats. We’ll think about what it takes to manage the process, and the economics of translating software. We’ll also cover language challenges, using computer-assisted translation, and translation memories.
