Short presentation of the project
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.
