“ Organization is a critical academic skill and one that many students struggle with in both the physical and digital worlds. Parents and teachers already help students get organized and now need to extend that to the digital world. Given the influx of technology in their academic lives, students need to develop an effective organizational system for their digital notes, projects and thinking.”

How to simply switch target and source roles in Trados Studio instead of converting PO files (from SuperText AG's blog) | Study | Scoop.it

Tired of converting PO files? Annoyed with deleting the content of the target segments before entering your translation? Want to use the target text of a PO file as source text in Trados Studio? Try out our PO file type definition for Trados Studio! It could come in really handy.

Stanislav Okhvat's curator insight, May 19, 2016 1:27 AM
SuperText AG presents a special file type definition for importing PO files into SDL Trados Studio. Unlike the built-in file type that exists in Studio, this one offers a very useful option: you can use the target text (msgstr attribute) of the PO file as the source text during translation, and the translated PO file will still contain the original source text (msgid attribute).

How to Write a Cover Letter: 14 Best Practices for Dramatically Better Job Applications

How to Write a Cover Letter: 14 Best Practices for Dramatically Better Job Applications | Study | Scoop.it
The cover letter is one of the few documents that nearly everyone will have to write at some point in their life. It has been said that the CV is possibly the most important document you will ever write and if this is the case then arguably, the cover letter could be a close second. The good news is that whilst it might seem complex, in truth it is a just a combination of basic principles that need to be included and followed.

Here are some ideas for writing a better cover letter.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, February 24, 2015 11:06 PM

I guess this is something that needs constant brushing up, even if it means we have done some form of it in English class. The format generally followed in India is the block format with the writer's address and the receiver's address coming on the left, and yes, there is the statement of the subject too, which cannot be done without!

 

Trumans's curator insight, February 25, 2015 4:16 PM

As an Executive Search consultant I would advise every candidate to read this. It's right on the money. One other important point to note: if the application asks for a cover letter and you don't supply one, you have failed the first test.

Distance and On-line Courses for Translators

Distance and On-line Courses for Translators | Study | Scoop.it

The purpose of this paper is to provide information about distance and online courses for translators around the world. Translators seem to be ideal candidates for online and distance courses as they are often already working as translators or in another profession when they decide to enroll for a translation course. Also, as continuing education is extremely important in our profession, distance and online courses can be an interesting alternative to traditional education for those who cannot attend a classroom. Furthermore, such courses can prove of interest for people with a degree or experience in another field, such as law, medicine or engineering for example, who have the necessary language skills to work as translators but would like to earn a certificate or degree in translation as well.

(EN) 301 Prompts for Argumentative Writing ~ NY Times ~ by Michael Gonchar | Study | Scoop.it
If anything ever published on The Learning Network could be said to have “gone viral,” it is last February’s “200 Prompts for Argumentative Writing,” which we created to help teachers and students participate in our inaugural Student Editorial Contest. "Well, this year we’re back with the Second Annual Student Editorial Contest (get yours in by March 9!), and, to go with it, we’ve updated last year’s list with new questions and what we hope is more useful categorization. "So scroll through the 301 prompts below that touch on every aspect of contemporary life — from politics to sports, culture, education and technology — and see which ones most inspire you to take a stand. Each question comes from our daily Student Opinion feature, and each provides links to free Times resources for finding more information."
