The Monterey Institute of International Studies has been using cloud-based computer-assisted translation technology in the classroom since 2008. This new approach to teaching tools-driven translation, where software no longer resides on students' or the institution's computers but on an external service providers' web-enabled servers, has been welcomed by students, the information technology department, and the Institute's administration alike. This presentation will provide a general introduction to cloud-based translation and then go on to discuss how cloud-based translation software has changed the technical, financial, and pedagogical framework of teaching computer-assisted translation courses at the Monterey Institute.
