Short presentation of the project
Masaryk University in Brno, the Czech Republic, worked with eight students of the Master’s programme “English-language Translation” at the Department of English and American Studies, Faculty of Arts, on a terminology project in the field of IT and Social Media. They completed their first batch in July 2014. The cooperation is ongoing.
Jarmila Fictumová, Lecturer since 2000, specialises in teaching practical language, translation and interpreting. She earned her PhDr in translation theory from Charles University in Prague in 1985. In 2005, she received a Certificate in the Training of Translators from the Consortium for Training Translation Teachers. She also took specialised on-line courses on editing and proofreading (Tarragona 2004) and localisation (London 2010). Her interests are e-learning, corpus linguistics and application of new technologies in teaching. Apart from teaching she has also worked as a freelance translator (since 1994) and translated for the European Commission and the ECB (2003-2008).
