Translation technology has become an integral part of the life of a professional translator. Computer-aided translation (CAT) tools have evolved over the years from basic translation memory systems to full-fledged translation environment tools (TEnTs), offering a wide range of support to the professional translator. Moreover, these environments attempt to reach the optimal level of human–machine interactions by increasingly integrating translation memory (TM) and machine translation (MT) suggestions in more interactive ways. However, with the growing variety of MT paradigms and changing translation work flows (e.g. collaborative translation), new challenges lie ahead.
For this Special Issue we seek novel, original contributions across the entire spectrum of computer-aided translation technology, covering advances in the
- Matching and retrieval of segments in translation memories
- Integration of TM and MT suggestions
- Integration of client-specific terminology in neural MT
- Multilingual terminology extraction
- Quality estimation of MT and TM suggestions
- Translation quality assurance
- Automatic methods for translation memory cleaning and maintenance
- Productivity measurements
- Effort prediction and price estimation
- Methods for collaborative translation
- Post-editing guidelines and best practices
- Intelligent interface design
- User-adaptive systems
- Automatic speech recognition for dictating translations
- Integration with text authoring tools

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Informatics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
