The collaboration with the Scuola Superiore per Mediatori Linguistici (CIELS) resulted into another successful terminology project, this time about politics, election, and culture.
The aim of this project was to give the students the opportunity to work at a professional level with terminology and at the same time contribute to the IATE, which is a fundamental resource in our daily work as translators. Students often underestimate the importance of terminological research in their work, and this project was the most appropriate way to interest them by making them feel responsible and part of a real working experience. They were very motivated and enthusiastic at the idea of contributing to the largest terminology database and this helped them in their translation work for lessons as well.
The project consisted in translating four terms each in the fields of culture and political elections from English into Italian providing a solid definition and context.
