Many people do terminology work, but may not be aware of it. In this webinar we will take an in-depth look at the roles involved in terminology work and list out what tasks people in these roles do. Terminology tasks indicate which skills someone needs to possess or acquire to fulfill that role. Having a clear understanding of the skills is essential to either recruit specifically for a role or to train existing participants to meet those skills.

Learning objectives: After this webinar, you will be able to
• Identify the job roles involved in terminology work
• List terminology-related tasks
• Understand the skills necessary to perform these tasks
