Terminology is not what it used to be

May 3, 2023 / 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Attend this webinar from the comfort of your own home. Come away with an understanding of terminology as it is understood by a machine translation tool.

Terminology is no longer what it used to be! Text mining and computational grammar have completely changed the way we approach terminology, making traditional dictionaries obsolete. We’ll introduce you to the concepts of granularity, ontology, and folksonomy that are critical to understanding how machine translation engines work.

This knowledge will enable you to use this tool to its full potential, whether as a supplement to your translations or for post-editing tasks. This investment of your time and money will not only be a step forward in your career, but will also ensure that you stay at the forefront of the latest developments in terminology technology.

The presentation is designed for both translators and interpreters who want to use the latest advances in terminology technology to improve their work and take their careers to the next level.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  1. Find out why text mining, computational grammar, and biomedical ontologies are changing the way we approach terminology
  2. Learn how to tackle challenges in these disciplines and stay ahead of the curve
  3. Familiarize yourself with job options like term validator, text miner, or enhancer.
