Technical communication relies on the use of standardized terms and names of the respective field. Translators are required to find the correct equivalents in their target language. Once the research is done, we don’t want to do it over again for the next job. In this webinar, we will cover how to document terms and names to retrieve the information again for the next job, no matter the terminology tool. We will cover:

1. The most important information to document 2. The best way to document any part of speech 3. One way to document terminological data outside of a specific tool

This is a webinar on basic aspects of terminology management. No prior knowledge is required.
