Summary/Abstract: After having examined the possibilities of translating the English can, must, need and should, we are interested whether it is worth creating a database for translating the English modal verb could into Hungarian. Computer assisted translation (CAT) offers the possibility of creating and investigating a large database (e.g. SDL Trados or MemoQ), and we will check whether there is a possibility of enhancing productivity in case of could analyzing fiction and legal texts.
