tekom Belgium hosts workshop on “Applied terminology work”

tekom Belgium hosts a one-day workshop on “Applied terminology work” on May 6, 2014. “Terminology work is just an academic exercise for linguists, isn’t it”? This one-day workshop helps in completely overcoming this or similar prejudices.

We take a look at the typical workday in companies and organizations and show you how “applied” terminology work can pay off economically.  

You will learn… 

  • about the “characteristics” of prescriptive (standardizing) terminology work
  • how you can get involved in “applied” terminology work with just a little effort and resources
  • what tools, methods and processes it would take to include everyone in an organization in this work
  • how to get around stumbling blocks and avoid frustration during the establishment of the terminology work, and
  • how to motivate and inspire other people for terminology work

Speakers Mark Childress, Dr. Francois Massion and Peter Oehmig guarantee you will absorb the greatest amount of material possible in one day – presented in a diverting and  vivid form that invites others to join in. All three of them have been entrusted with terminology work in their company and have many years of experience in this field.

Target audience:  Students, technical writers, translators, executives of language service companies who want to introduce terminology work in their company/organization, as well as anyone dealing with the “scientific” variation of terminology work up until now who wants to learn something about its practical application.

Specific previous knowledge is not required. The workshop will be held in English (examples from the German, English and/or French languages can also be used in the presentations).
