Dear colleagues,

It is a pleasure to inform you that the Online Postgraduate Programme in
Terminology, under the academic directorship of Professor M. Teresa Cabré, will
be taught in English from February 2009 on. This is a programme already
consolidated, and it has been given in Spanish for more than 5 years by teachers
and researches of IULATERM, a research group in terminology of the Institute
for Applied Linguistics at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.

We open again the introductory course, but now taught in English, thinking
specially about professionals devoted to linguistic advice, translation, technical
writing or documentation, who are interested in being formed in terminology and
terminography; that is to say, professionals who work in any language and
use English as their vehicular language.

For further information, you can consult our web

The link doesn't work. Maybe it was killed in a vehicular crash?
