Glossary Building for Translators and Interpreters - July 2024

Glossaries save time. They help ensure accuracy and consistency. Every interpreter and translator needs effective skills for glossary development.

This language-neutral, four-hour workshop supports translators and interpreters who work in any language pair. It shows you how to conduct efficient terminology searches on the internet and build reliable glossaries that you can keep for future assignments. You’ll learn how to create your own glossaries with step-by-step, time-saving strategies that will last a lifetime. The course is packed with hands-on activities and exercises, and you’ll receive professionally designed glossary templates and guidelines for further exploration.
