The Translation Tracking System (TTS) is a database management tool intended to help translation researchers, translator trainers and translators to collect and organize archives of translated material. Relevant corpora can then be extracted from the archive in order to be further processed and analyzed using other natural language processing tools. This paper briefly describes the design and development of TTS, and it then goes on to explore how this tool has been successfully applied in an academic environment to help translator trainers identify areas of difficulty that have been encountered by their students. Some other applications of TTS are also discussed.
