We’re back this week with three new posts containing information about PLD members who shared their knowledge with attendees at the ATA 56th Annual Conference this year. Today we’d like to share the slides used by Naomi Sutcliffe de Moraes during her session: “Improve Your Workflow Using Spreadsheet and Macro Programs.”
Do you do everything in a text editor because you never got the hang of spreadsheets? Do you wish you could just type abbreviations for long words you have to type repeatedly? If so, then this session is for you! The speaker will explain how to use spreadsheets to manage your terminology and the business side of your translation business. She will also explain how to use macro programs like AutoHotKeys to allow you to type an abbreviation for those long words in any program, not just your text editor. Both Windows and Mac OS solutions will be discussed.
