SAGER, Juan C.
Since the advent of the computer, terminology
management can be carried out by almost anyone who has learnt to use a microcomputer.
Terminology management has proved to be an efficient tool in international
communications in industry, education and international organizations. Software
packages are readily available and international corporations often have their
own terminology database. Following these developments, translators and terminologists
are confronted with a specialized form of information management involving
compilation and standardization of vocabulary, storage, retrieval and updating.
The book provides the key to methods of terminology
management for the English language, for general and specific purposes. This
unique course has been developed on the basis of years of teaching experience
and research at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology
(UK) and is particularly suitable for translation courses, freelance translators,
technical writers, as well as for non-linguists who are confronted with terminology
processing as part of their profession.
