Language engineering and translation places the activity of technical translation into the modern environment of information technology. The advent of automated alternatives to human translation has fundamentally affected the profession, its products and the relationship between translators and their clients. This book presents and discusses the translation process against its background. The context in which translation is normally studied is widened in order to re-examine this process as part of interlingual text production and to analyse the manner in which tools affect the production of translations.
