T10-Terminology, Building Non-Cat Glossaries
|Availability:||This training is available on-demand|
|Summary:||Learn to create your personal glossaries, making it easier for you to work on translations or prepare for your interpreting assignments, while ensuring consistency and accuracy for the future. Learn to capitalize on this easy-to-use tool.
In 90 minutes, you will learn a basic methodology to search for terms, working with your own template, creating and gradually accumulating your personal glossary by client or domain; learn what, when, and how to enter and retrieve information, change and update it. You may later use it online or print it for your own translations and interpretation, or you may wish to share it with your clients.
Topics include what to include and what to exclude, how to extract terminology, preparation, selection, organization and verification, combination and sharing of glossaries.
This is one session of a 5-part bundle on the terminology used in healthcare and medicine, legal settings and finance and business, and tips on how to build better glossaries. You may take each session individually or the 5 sessions as a unit.
Note for CAT users: This session does NOT cover the technical and mechanical aspects of glossaries using CAT tools. It may, however, prove useful to compile terms to use later with your CAT tools.
