Despite spectacular growth since the late 1980s, translator-training institutions are becoming increasingly inadequate to even newer market demands, particularly those ensuing from the sectors associated with the term 'localization'. And yet the humanistic values at the base of those institutions are not without relevance in the technocratic world. This paper will propose ways in which training programmes can at once adapt to market forces and retain some hope of helping to shape the direction of those same forces. Particular attention will be paid to the use of case-study methods, the in-class use of CAT software, and the integration of ODL techniques.
