Translation Technology Workshop - Term Extraction and Terminology Management - 11th May

Translation Unit - Imperial College London
Term Extraction and Terminology Management
Saturday 11 May 2013

There are still places available for the Term Extraction and Terminology Management workshop being held by the Translation Unit at Imperial College

This is open to professionals as well as students

Course Content

At the end of this course, participants will:

·         be familiar with the main concepts of term extraction;

·         have been able to familiarize themselves with the term extraction software presented;

·         have become acquainted with Lingo, a terminology management system, which allows the import of term extraction results, the creation and management of glossaries and dictionaries as well as the export of these for use in other programs.

The first part of the course will deal with term extraction and its basic concepts. In a hands-on session, participants will be able to work and experiment with the term extraction software (SDL Multiterm Extract 2011).

In order to provide a seamless transition from term extraction to glossary/dictionary building and management, the second part of the course will show participants how to use Lingo, a user-friendly and efficient program dedicated to creating and maintaining monolingual and multilingual terminologies. Participants will learn how glossaries/dictionaries are made, modified, searched, and managed. Lingo’s import (*.tmx and *.txt files) and export capabilities (*.tmx, *.txt and *.rtf files) will also be looked at. Following this, participants will have the opportunity to explore and practice the various features of Lingo.

Detailed handouts of how to use the term extractor and the terminology management system will be provided.

Participants are encouraged to bring along their own language material, e.g. source texts and their translations.
