La Jolla, CA and Mulhouse, France — July 02, 2019 —The University of Upper Alsace (UHA) announced today it is partnering with MadCap Software to provide students access to cutting-edge software solutions used by thousands of organizations around the globe. Graduate students at UHA will gain hands-on experience with MadCap Flare, the most advanced technical authoring and publishing solution on the market, and MadCap Lingo, a fully integrated computer-assisted translation (CAT) tool offering advanced translation management for technical authors, documentation teams, and translators.

Students enrolled in the Master of Arts program in Scientific and Technical Translation (Master TST) will get hands-on training and certification in the software applications. The two-year program, unique in its mixing of applied languages and sciences, has been a part of the prestigious EMT network (European Master's in Translation) of the EU Commission since 2014. Using Flare and MadCap Lingo, students will now be able to gain additional experience in writing, managing, publishing, and translating technical documents that showcase their skillsets and qualifications.

“Through our research, we discovered MadCap Software as one of the leading software developers in the field of technical communication and content development. Our MA program is mostly focused on scientific and technical translation, and includes training in several of the major CAT tools, but so far no all-encompassing application for technical writing has been taught within the program. We decided that it was time to introduce one, and the MadCap Scholar Program is allowing us to do just that.”

Enrico Monti, PhD.
Associate Professor in English and Translation Studies | University of Upper Alsace

Dr. Monti and his colleagues have observed that the industry in France is quite receptive to innovation within this field, so having exposure to these technologies will be incredibly beneficial to UHA graduates. He adds, “Incorporating one of the most widely used technical writing tools means our students will be able to lead technological innovation within a Technical Documentation department in which some of them will work.”

“Technical documentation is such an integral part of the translation and localization process, so we are thrilled to be partnering with a leading institution such as the University of Upper Alsace.” says Anthony Olivier, MadCap Software founder and CEO. “Through our MadCap Scholar Program, we can empower students globally to strengthen their knowledge of best practices to ensure competitive advantage in the workforce.”
