Why do universities partner with Phrase?
Phrase by the numbers
Having access to translation technology tools is of great importance for translation students... Fortunately, Phrase, which is a computer-aided translation (CAT) tool, offers a free academic plan to the translation departments of the universities since 2012.
I wanted to make all course participants project managers, as that would allow them to see the full chain of tasks required to produce a translation. With Phrase, we found a solution that allows exactly that.
Phrase is intuitive to learn for project managers and linguists, and to have such advanced features available in a cloud-based tool is simply amazing, not to mention cross-platform editors for Mac and Windows.
Ever since Phrase was released, it has ranked among our students’ favorite tools for its straightforwardness, interface clarity and low maintenance requirements for the end user.
It has always been an extreme pleasure for me to work with the cutting edge technology you engineered as it allowed me to present the work of real-life translators to those who strive to become such. It has provided me with opportunities to experiment and challenge my students in a way I have not even imagined before. But most of all it gave them the chance to master a tool they would need in their professional career in the safe world of the classroom, away from the frustration of the working environment.
