Information technology not only offers us tools. It is itself a field in which more and more translation work is actually performed. This is certainly true of other fields like marketing materials, packaging materials, advertising copy, and manuals. But in the case of information technology products, it is frequently the products themselves that need to be translated. Whenever a program or process displays a word or a phrase on the screen, this means potential work for a translator or many translators.
