ACADEMIC PROGRAM

InterpretBank has been developed at the Faculty for Translation and Interpreting of the University of Mainz/Germersheim. With this academic vocation in mind, we want to facilitate universities opening up to the world of computer-assisted interpreting (CAI) and offer them special conditions (in many cases free licenses) to teach InterpretBank. We do a lot of academic research in the field of CAI and offer the tool and our support to any researcher who wants to do research in this field. Below you can find some selected publications on InterpretBank
