Various strategies that translators at any stage in their careers can use to improve their consistency and accuracy when translating such documents will also be presented.

How much of this course deals with terminology? I am asking because my target langusge is Danish and terminology issues will probably differ from those of many other languages.

Dear Randi,

Thank you for your question. The webinar will not concentrate on any one language. However, I have a list of resources, including language-specific ones, that I will hand out after the presentation. I will also be discussing commonly confused word (such as "effectiveness" and "efficacy," but these will be in English.

Have a wonderful day!

Carmen
