TermNet – Terminology Summer School 2018 Vienna

TermCoord was represented at the ECQA Summer School this Summer in Vienna, 9-13 July 2018, by our former terminology trainee María Isabel Bolívar Pérez, terminologist Stine Jensen, and Head of Unit Rodolfos Maslias who was invited for the workshop “STANDARDS, LEGAL ISSUES” and “TERMINOLOGY FOR EUROPE” on the last day of the event, Friday 13. The Summer School focused on the advanced terminology certification this year and had, apart from the more traditional theoretical lectures (see the program), some very interesting inputs both from the industry and from experienced terminology consultants sharing their experience and best practices within the field. On Thursday 12 July, a more hands-on insight on ‘how the theory was applied in practice’ through the presentations of the participants’ projects and experience or rather on ‘how terminology is practised around the world’. Stine Jensen presented the Danish Terminology Network and her experience as a rotating terminologist here with us and María Isabel TermCoord and her experience as a trainee here with us. The last day of the Summer School, Friday 13 July, took more the shape of a conference and an insight into global and national terminology initiatives as well as within language communities was given.
