About the Video

Easier and quicker terminology searches for translators

As translators, we are required to provide high-quality translations. To do so, we need our research competence, i.e. the skills to search, evaluate and filter information, becomes essential as we need to find reliable information sources, equivalents, phraseology, textual conventions, etc. This webinar gives an overview of the terminology searches for translators and research competence that translators need, aiming at highlighting the different aspects that need to be developed to improve final translation quality. It also focuses on different online resources that are useful for translators, both traditional (eg. searchers or metasearchers) and less traditional (eg. webrings, translation memory searchers or bilingual searchers) and some other options that can help translators when translating (blogs, compiled corpora, applications).
