Abstract: Research results indicate that the ability to perform Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) in a telecollaborative mode is one of the sought-after qualities which translation agencies seek in prospective employees (Bondarenko, 2015). In response to that, a survey study, conducted on postgraduate student translators in an MA blended programme, explored their perceptions of: potential learning gains from telecollaboration, means of reflection on the work performed and the teamwork skills developed, self-assessment modes and the role of a face-to-face introduction to a telecollaboration project. This paper aims to shed light on the issues investigated through the afore-mentioned survey with a view to informing telecollaboration project design in translation courses.
