The conference became a field of discussions between the academic and the business world, as well as between freelance translators and translation agencies due to their different points of view. Nevertheless, the conference was a huge success, as it revealed to both the translators and the academics the importance of IT technologies in technical translations, and the fact that the future of translation lies in the development of a close man-computer cooperation.
