Introduction to Swordfish

6-week online at UCSD Extension

Learn to use Swordfish, a cross-platform Computer-Assisted Translation (CAT) tool, to create and maintain translation memory files and glossaries. Become skilled at program installation, use a license in different computers, set up databases to record your progress while performing translation projects and keep a glossary with preferred terminology, convert files into different formats to meet the demand of clients and collaborate with colleagues using other CAT tools, cooperate with classmates to complete translation assignments, and use the industry jargon during negotiation with clients.
