New trends in language teaching, interpreting and translation

2nd International Conference Language, Linguistics and Technology - TECHLING'17

*  *  *

Published on Monday, June 26, 2017


TechLING is an international conference devoted to the application of technology to language teaching, translation and interpreting. We are looking for contributions that present novel technology-based approaches, both academic and non academic, to the study, use and commercialization of language-related solutions/applications. Proposals are expected to report on results achieved through the combination of linguistic approaches and technology, involving one, two or all of the major areas of the conference.



The main focus is on new trends and innovative approaches in language teaching, interpreting and translation:

  • language teaching and technology: language acquisition and learning, language disorders, digital educational resources, multimodality, mobile learning, distance education, languages for specific purposes, flipped classroom, MOOCs, digital game-based language learning, computer-assisted language therapy and rehabilitation;
  • interpreting and technology: remote interpreting, telephone interpreting, video-based interpreting, webcast interpreting, computer-assisted interpreting and interpreter training, corpus-based interpreting studies and training, speech technologies, respeaking;
  • translation and technology: revision, post-editing, terminology, lexicography, compilation/annotation of translational corpora, query systems, data sharing, text statistics, localization (software, websites, videogames), data mining, semantic web.

Please note that the lists of subtopics under each main topic are intended as guidelines for submission, and hence are by no means exhaustive.
