Terminology Management—Why Would I Do That?

June 8, 2016

Is there more to your job than the daily chase for the best translation? Consider the long-term view instead: taking time to systematically document your research today to improve the quality and speed of your translation in the future.

Attend this webinar to find out more about using a terminology management system to increase the efficiency and accuracy of your translations. Plus learn how to build your own system to save, organize, and retrieve terms and concepts.

What Will You Learn?

  1. What it means to “manage terminology”
  2. Why freelance translators should manage terminology
  3. Why a glossary is often not enough
  4. Why standards are important and when you can take liberty with them
  5. What steps are necessary to manage your terminology
