The Master's Degree in Computer-Assisted Translation: Translation Technologies first emerged in its present format in 2001, with the aim of training up specialists in translation technologies. In the knowledge society the translation process is carried out using technology and translation tools. In fact, the technologies themselves have created the need to translate a great variety of digital formats that can only be translated with the help of specific computer-based tools and resources, such as all digital texts (web pages, smartphone software, televisions, etc.). All areas of specialised translation (scientific and technical or legal translation, for example) also require mastery of these tools. Therefore, today's labour market seeks translators who are familiar with the use of translation technologies and digital formats (as shown by the master's high employability figures; see the Career options section). This programme now wants to go further, not only providing tools and resources for translation, but also including a wide range of content to help students acquire a competitive professional identity in the language services sector. Basically, this means acquiring the knowledge and skills to carry out several functions in a professional manner: project management, website localisation, multimedia, software, mobile device applications, video games, layouting, quality control, machine translation and post-editing, etc. Technology can thus be seen as no more than a tool to help us work more efficiently and productively in the translation and localisation sector.
