Summary:By means of practical examples, this webinar presents several possibilities to make a better use of Microsoft Word's Find-Replace function in order to save time and achieve better quality in your translations
Microsoft Word’s Find-Replace function may be extremely useful for translators, particularly when reviewing their own or their colleague’s work, when pre-formatting the original document before translating, or editing/proofreading the translated text. However, most Word users, including translators, do not know or do not use all of its potential. As a result, they end up spending a great deal of their time doing boring repetitive tasks that the computer could perform faster and possibly better. This webinar presents several possibilities to use this functionality to its fullest, thus saving time and achieving better quality in your translations. All topics are demonstrated by means of practical exercises with the program.
Target audience
- Translators, reviewers and proofreaders who use Word-based CAT tools;
