The neocyborg "has the outward form of cyborgism, such as an artificial limb, but lacks full homeostatic integration of the prosthesis" (Gray, 14); the neocyborg translator consists of a human translator sitting at a computer, but so that the computer still serves as a typewriter, without full utilization of word-processing, term-management, e-mail, or web-browsing capabilities *the semicyborg, an intermittent cyborg, only hooked up to technology some of the time; most professional translators become semicyborgs when they work.
