(27-28 November 2008, at the Holiday Inn Camden Lock, London).

This conference focuses on the user's perspective of how computers/software is
used in translation. The conference series attracts a wide audience which
includes translation services managers, translators, business managers,
researchers and language experts. Once again, this year the conference will
address the latest developments in translation (and translation-related)
software. It will address the needs of the following conference attendees:
industry, public administration, agencies, freelancers and development.

This call for papers invites abstracts of papers to be presented at the
