This volume is a well-earned tribute to the work of Arnt Lykke Jakobsen from colleagues from CBS as well as translation scholars from all over the world. The first contribution is Inger M. Mees’s overview of Arnt Lykke Jakobsen’s career pre-Translog, while the second, by Lasse Schou, Barbara Dragsted and Michael Carl, describes how Translog, the key-logging software designed by Lykke Jakobsen, developed into a tool which is used in translation process research worldwide.
