Dear list,

Here is a try to find a way to do fast and with efficiency with the question of a bilingual scholarly production (French and English).

I produced a French blog article on «Comment éviter les retours des travers de l'Age Classique dans les DH?» (http://claireclivaz.hypotheses.org/235)

I did an automatized English translation with this tool (thank you to Elisabeth Blurr and the ADHO-MLMC committee for the link): http://www.bing.com/translator/
Then I ask to an academic native speaker to check the automatized translation (many thanks to Jim Wilcox). And I have got this result: «How to avoid the return of the Classical Age in the Digital Humanities?»; http://claireclivaz.hypotheses.org/242

Efficient? Reactions? Opinions?

In any case, it was easy, fast, not expansive.

All the best,

Claire Clivaz
