Offering an overview of the technical skills required by translators working with digital content, this book looks at the data explosion that is characteristic of Web 2.0, the impact of shortened publishing cycles on the internationalisation and localisation processes due to the availability of online services, and the impact of the increasing number of devices that are being used to consume digital content.
