A discussion with Marc Prior


Dear Colleagues,

Many thanks to Antonio Oliver Gonzalez for the “virtual” invitation to Spain and to discuss software for translators with you.

I am of English origin but have lived in Germany for 20 years. I have been a professional translator for 24 years now, and for the last 18 years I have been a freelance. I translate from German, Italian and Dutch into English.

Around 13 years ago, I began using the Linux operating system, and I have built up resources for translators who use Linux at www.linuxfortranslators.org.

Since 2003, I have also been the project co-ordinator of the OmegaT project. OmegaT is the most popular free/open-source CAT (computer-aided translation) software. I have heard that OmegaT is also taught on courses at your university.

Now that I am here, please take advantage of this! My knowledge and experience are at your disposal. Don’t worry about making mistakes in your English – I don’t speak any Spanish, after all. Continue reading
