Aristotle University of Thessaloniki for IATE: Migration

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki

Short presentation of the project

The aim of this project was to both initiate MA students to terminology work and to contribute to the IATE term-base with well-documented and reliable terms. For this purpose, a number of textual resources and access to the internal IATE interface were offered to us by TermCoord. For each term, members of the team had to provide a solid definition and context in both English and Greek. Our final results were also discussed with experts in the fields of Migration Law and Social Anthropology.

The Aristotle University’s IATE project on migration was carried out by MA students during their second year of the Inter-Faculty Postgraduate Program in Translation. This program is offered jointly by the Schools of Philology, English, French, German and Italian Languages of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. This MA Program is actually the only one in Greece that has received the EMT Label.
