The scope of the discipline is therefore quite broad, and the course focuses on some of its many issues: corpus linguistics, information management, text annotation, automated and assisted translation. AIMS AND CONTENT LEARNING OUTCOMES The course aims at providing learners with the basic notions of automatic text processing, knowledge of the mechanisms behind automated translation and quantitative corpus analysis and the skills necessary to work with computer assisted translation. AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES Students will learn: the fundamentals of Computational Linguistics and the principles of automated and computer-assisted translation the principles and techniques for information management the principles and techniques for text annotation through XML the skills necessary to work with computer-assisted transaltion and terminology management TEACHING METHODS Frontal lectures and practice SYLLABUS/CONTENT 1.
