  22nd Conference
 "Translating and the Computer"
      16-17 November 2000
    One Great George Street, London, SW1

The annual conference "Translating and the Computer" has been an
important forum for Machine Translation and Translation Aids users over
the past 21 years. The conference is one of the few international events
which focuses on the user aspects of translation software and as such
has been particularly beneficial to a very wide audience including
translators, business managers, researchers and language experts.

Against the background of an increasingly multilingual society and the
all-encompassing impact of information technology, this year's
conference will address the latest developments in translation (and
translation-related) software.

This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented at the
conference. The papers (and the presentations) should focus on the user
aspects of translation or translation-related software rather than on
research and development issues. Presentations accompanied by
demonstrations are especially welcome.


The range of conference topics includes (but is not limited to)
* use of Machine Translation (MT) systems
* machine-aided translation and translation aids
* memory based translation
* controlled languages and their use in MT
* speech translation
* terminology
* localisation
* translation aids for minority languages
* multilingual document management/workflow
* experience of companies using translation software
* translating and the computer: the new millennium challenges
* the Internet and translation aids


Authors are requested to submit an extended abstract (between 500 and
1000 words) of the paper they would like to present. Extended abstracts
should be sent by post, fax or email before 22 May 2000 to:
