In this episode of Speaking of Translation, Eve and Corinne share some new tips and tricks to help you work more efficiently and learn new skills. Including:
Text-to-speech proofreading (having your computer read your translations out loud). Addendum: the text-to-speech engine in MS Word is available for Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.
Speech-to-text dictation in Excel (rather than retyping those tedious numbers)
Using a tablet as a second monitor
Kutools for Excel, an MS Office add-on that lets you–among other things–search across multiple Excel files
ORCIT, the European Union’s Online Resources for Conference Interpreter Training course (thanks to Tamara Muroiwa for the recommendation)
