Do you want to offer an added value proposition to your clients that are not currently using an SDL platform? Create glossaries to give you that special edge that makes a difference when the client is deciding who to use for their translations and interpretation projects. Learn to capitalize on this easy-to-use tool.
In 90 minutes, you will learn a basic methodology to search for terms, create a glossary, gradually accumulate, increase and perfect it; you will also acquire simple tools to enter and retrieve information, change and update it; you will gain information on what, when, and how to do it.
You will understand the concepts of unidirectional and bidirectional glossaries and their vital role in the world of translation and interpretation; and you will practice creating your personalized template of an electronic and visual bilingual glossary that you may later use online or in print for your own translations and interpretation, or to share with your client’s personnel.

"Excellent presentation of the topic without too much detail, but with useful links and examples. I'm..." Read more looking forward to getting more consistent in my projects and providing my clients with even better translations."
"Despite the time limits, Claudia succeeded in giving a clear, well structured and quite complete exp..." Read morelanation of the subject, with much practical information and lots of very useful tools and files.
A part on the integration of glossaries and TMs would have been welcome, but nevertheless I definitely recommend this webinar and Claudia as a trainer."
"I expected something different from this class. Maybe more into how to render glossaries more usable..." Read more through different IT tools but I need to confess I missed half an hour of the class as I had to leave... Will read the handouts!!
On the other hand, Claudia provides as many interesting hints and links to study further as you may wish, which is excellent!! She really shares her knwoledge!!!"
"To my opinion, the course could have lasted 60 minutes (which was actually the announced time) inste..." Read moread of 90 minutes, because the first third of it was useless (for example the part "Does the effort of making a glossary pay off ?" - the attendants don't need to be convinced of this). Also, I would have liked more technical tips, for example with a glossary being created "live" with Word or Excel, and the most interesting options (classification in alphabetical order...) being presented."
