Abstract

The pervasive role of technology in T&I has seen unpreceded changes in teaching and learning, professional practice, and community engagement. As Neural Machine Translation and Artificial Intelligence continues to improve, so will these new technological methods and the way academics teach T&I programs. However, little is known about how and where these tools are taught in Australia. This research sets out to fill this gap. It does so by using publicly available data on university websites, as well as the perspectives of a broad range of academics obtained through an online survey, to answer these questions. While each technological approach has its limitations, there is a pressing need to understand the extent of teaching using technological tools in the Australian context, so that future translators and interpreters are better-informed in their educational choices, better equipped with the appropriate tools, and better prepared for their future as translators and interpreters in an increasingly digital age.
