Short presentation of the project
The project was meant to familiarize Greek MA students attending the programs of Translation and Interpreting with the IATE terminological and terminographical procedures. Terms translated by the students were first reviewed by project coordinators prior to be submitted to the Termcoord team. The working languages were English and Greek.
The Hellenic American College’s IATE project on translation was carried out by MA students at their first year of the Arts in Translation and Conference Interpretation´s programmes.
