Welcome!

This website was prepared by Eugenia Tumanova and Megan Lehmann to complement their presentation Noob No More: Making the Most of Internet Resources in Translation, given at the 50th Annual American Translators Association Conference in New York City in 2009.

You can use this site to view the presentation (posted here as of 11/03/2009!), see how Google Docs and Google Sites can be used to collaborate on translation projects, ask questions, and leave feedback.

About the Presenters:

Growing up in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, the heart of the "Silicon Prairie," she became both a language and computer geek with a knack for ferreting out tricky technical terms. Eugenia holds a master's degree in Translation and Interpretation from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.
