      Second Circular Letter and Call for Papers
      International Conference
      on
      Translating with Computer-Assisted Technology:
      Changes in Research, Teaching, Evaluation, and Practice

      Hosted by the
      University of Rome "La Sapienza"
      With the support of
      American Bible Society (ABS) Interactive, Society of Biblical
      Literature, Nida Institute for Biblical Scholarship, The European
      Society of Translation Studies (EST), and
      The Louvain Research Center for Translation, Communication, and
      Culture (CETRA)

      April 14, 15, 16, 2004

      Conference Theme
      The theme of this conference asserts that computer-assisted
      technology and the digitization of information have changed the
      theory and practice of translating, both globally and irreversibly.
      From one point of view, computer-assisted technology has brought
      only minimal and cosmetic change. Computers just help us work
      faster, smarter.
      But from another point of view, computer-assisted technology and
      digitization have radically transformed not just the surface
      structure of this profession, but also its deep internal structures
      as well. And they have done so in ways that we only now begin to
      fathom, whether we are speaking of biblical, literary, technical,
      scientific, audio-visual, or multimedia translating.
