Memory-resident notepads were also convenient. Neither of these, however, was nearly as helpful as glossary software devel­ oped specifically for the translator—for example, Mercury (see Wright in this volume). Equipped with a modem and telecommunication software, students can access data banks of general interest, or they can target more specific fields. When there are a number of possible translations of a source term, the student can search through literally hundreds of documents to determine which word has been used in similar contexts.

Several years ago the University decided to pur­ chase a number of NBI machines, most of them System 3000. Four terminals with two printers were set up in the Intercultural Center, in an area accessible to all faculty and their office assistants. For the authors this meant graduating directly from a manual typewriter to a dedicated word processor, and our lives have not been the same since. Student access to the terminals is the second, equally important prob­ lem. The purchase of a standalone terminal on a wheeled table was the partial answer to it, as well as reserving access to the faculty ma­ chines for some evening sessions.

What are the special problems for an academic institution that arise from this decision? First, if students are to learn how to use word proc­ essors efficiently for translation, their teachers must know how to use these systems as well.
