Concluding Remarks: Insights and Implications for Technology Implementation in Higher Education for Second Language Teaching and Translation Studies

  • María Luisa Carrió-PastorEmail author
Part of the New Frontiers in Translation Studies book series (NFTS)


The research and outcomes presented in this volume show a wide ranging set of studies, each exploring different aspects of the implementation of technology in higher education. The book has first established the basic issues associated with technology use in higher education and then it has been divided into thematic sections, reflecting the interests of second language teachers and translation studies. The book sheds new light on the use of technology in teaching a second language and on studies on translation training.
