Abstract

Background: The challenges of the modern world with its advances in technology and fast-paced life highlight the need for constant professional development in different areas. Nowadays, one of popular university majors is technical translation. Various Ukrainian and foreign scientists, educators have focused on the improvement of courses for preservice interpreters.

Purpose: The purpose of this article is to review modern tendencies in ICT development which can be applied in terms of translators’ skill training.

Results: Comparison of machine-readable and online dictionaries, machine and computer aid translation has set the perspectives of pilot research study which involved 20 fourth-year students of National Metallurgical Academy of Ukraine. The participants analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of different e-resources, programs, devices.

Discussions: The complexity of the issue regarding information technology integration into educational process for technical translators’ training needs to be researched more to reflect the latest information and changes. Active learning approach can help to transform students’ skills from mechanical (just inputting words into the system) into creative ones (investigating the best options of combining words, definitions, illustrations) to make the training process more effective.

Keywords: technical translation, machine-readable dictionaries, online dictionaries, computer aid translation, machine translation, professional competences of translators.
