Machine Translation-Supported Writing #1918

Fri, Nov 12, 18:15-19:45 Asia/Tokyo | LOCATION: Room 05

Student use of machine translation apps to complete writing assignments is prevalent and persistent. Instead of discouraging its use, I believe we can help students use it effectively as part of the writing process. Specifically, machine translation can be used to increase L1 and L2 text analysis and rewriting, and improve L2 writing output. In this workshop, participants will experience a machine translation workflow in which they analyze, pre-edit, and post-edit a passage.
