Terminology Blog launched by participants of TSS 2009 Jul 14, 2009

Organizers and participants of TSS 2009 have launched the Terminology Blog as a tool to discuss some of the topics that are close to the heart of professionals and researchers in the field. The first blogs therefore include issues that were discussed during TSS 2009. However, discussion is open to everybody. Readership statistics sky-rocketed almost immediately and it remains to be tested whether these readers will also use the blog as a tool to comment, ask questions or trigger discussions.

Join the debate:

The International Terminology Summer School, or in short TSS, is an annual practice-oriented training on terminology management for professionals in these fields. It is organized by TermNet, the International Network for Terminology, an Austrian-based international NGO. 54 participants from more than 22 countries - most of them translators or terminologists in companies, non-profits, universities or freelance - gathered in Cologne last week for the 5-day seminar.
