The field of translation is in a state of transition, and software tools to support language
translation are evolving with corresponding rapidity. Increasingly available internet resources
are quickly expanding the possible and the practical when it comes to translating content, and
processes and business models which have remained relatively staid for decades are being
rethought. Even in the so-called “broadband” era where substantial parts of the globe enjoy
ubiquitous high-speed access, most translators and translation firms have employed rather
rudimentary technology processes in their translation workflow, generally copying and pasting
text between Word documents and transmitting their work artifacts as email attachments that
lack all but the most basic version control or metadata. But new online tools and innovative
new workflow models are turning the translation field on its head.
