Resumen:   Part 1 presents a detailed account of what is expected of modern day translators and interpreters. It discusses new roles which translators today are expected to play, such as the role of reviser or terminologist. It also discusses new professions pertaining to language services which we encounter on a daily basis but may not be entirely sure what they involve, such as project management, vendor management or localisation. Following this, we cover two very interesting topics. One is the role of the various standards applied to translation quality assurance and assessment, while the other is the increasingly popular concepts of volunteer translation and interpreting. Part 2 is centred on the role of information technology in translation and interpreting. One of the key topics of this area is machine translation. We examine the existing types of machine translation and present a critical analysis of its advantages and limitations. Another change regarding the role of IT in language services is the emergence and expansion of translation environment tools. Part 2 also gives a detailed presentation on the main components of translation environment tools, as well as a balanced and objective analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of using such tools, together with the characteristics of texts that they can be used to translate. The last part of this chapter discusses the role of IT in interpreting. Although these new technologies may not be used as often in the field of interpreting as they are in translation, they have influenced the way interpreters do their jobs, and the topic of machine interpreting is also one that comes up increasingly often. Part 3 focuses on the various challenges faced by translator and interpreter training. The training of translators and interpreters has seen numerous changes over the past few years. Another reason why we must mention training is that the shift in professional expectations for translators and interpreters has also brought about changes in what is demanded of training courses. This part touches on the profile of the modern-day translation instructor as well as new subjects in the field, such as language technology or translation projects. [Source: Editor]
