Abstract:
In order to describe the main characteristics of the work that teletranslators resident in Argentine, Chile and Spain perform, 1,073 professional translators participated in the 2011 survey. The data collected was contrasted by countries, and some data of former studies (2006 and 2008) concerning residents in Chile was compared with the results of the present study. The results of this quantitative and descriptive research were used to update and optimize the Master in Translation and the Diploma in Translation and TICs offered by the Translation Program at our University. We hope that the data can also be useful for other universities that train professional teletranslators. In this article we present data related to teletranslation, that is, TICs applied to the professional practice of translators.
