Abstract:
This paper presents a study among students enrolled in a Computer Applications in Translation course at the English department at Bisha University. The research aims to investigate the impact of integrating computer-aided translation (CAT) tools in translation courses on the English Department students at Bisha University. The study uses a quantitative approach and a causal-comparative design to measure students’ attitudes and expectations toward CAT tools integration in translation courses. The research population consists of 30 students of the English Department studying translation, and the research sample is chosen randomly to ensure accurate representation. Data are collected through a Questionnaire and analyzed using descriptive and comparative statistics. However, there are limitations to the current study, including the limited sample size and the focus on the impact on students only. The findings of this study will contribute to the understanding of the effectiveness of CAT tools in translation education and provide insights for English language and translation teachers on how to integrate these tools into their teaching practices.
