Jakub Absolon has successfully defended his PhD project.

Absolon

We have a new great achievement in our ASAP-translation.com team. Jakub Absolon has successfully defended his demanding PhD project on which he has intensively worked since 2017 with his doctorate advisor Associate Professor Daša Munková, PhD. They were dealing with an actual and difficult topic: Post-Editing of Machine Translation. Jakub has served twice as a president of the Association of Translation Companies of Slovakia (ATCSK) which only proves his expertise in this field. We believe that this achievement is yet another valuable and important step for the Translation studies as such. Congratulations, Jakub.

preklady

An educational seminar organized by ASAP-translation.com, s.r.o and Department of Translation Studies of Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra took place on Saturday, July 10th in university’s computer lab. Seminar was aimed at style guide and its usage in the process of translation of technical texts as well as specific situations in translation with the help of CAT tools such as Memsource and SDL Trados Studio and the usage of automatized quality assurance in those tools. The purpose of teamwork on translation projects, which was a separate topic, was also thoroughly discussed. This seminar is a real example of cooperation between academia and practice as we believe that it's fruitful for the both sides and in the end, it will contribute to the support of a professional approach in translatology.
