  • Working all day in front of a computer is not that great for your health. Anybody who spends a lot of time at a desk using a keyboard and mouse should be aware of the potential medical problems (back and neck ache, repetitive strain injuries, eye strain, etc) that can be caused by this type of work and should be aware of the preventive measures they can take to avoid such problems.
    This site offers sound advice on correct positioning of your screen and your posture whilst working with a computer.

    Amongst the various software programs available on the internet which can help to avoid repetitive strain type injuries, we recommend WorkRave. This freeware program, with its interface in English, Dutch, Spanish, Polish, Danish, German, French, Chinese and Russian, suggests to you when it is time to take a break from your work. Short and long pauses are programmed as well as stretching exercises for your hands, neck and back.

    BITRA is an impressive bibliography of interpreting and translation resources compiled and organised by Javier Franco Aixéla of Alicante University in Spain. This resource, with its 26,000 entries (books, chapters, articles, magazines, etc) will help with research in this field.
