Live webinar for beginners: Right word, right place

How do I use and maintain terminology dictionaries?

Clear and consistent terminology makes text easier to write, translate, and understand. Thus, terminology work gives you repeated benefits: It is the foundation for saying the right thing with the right words – in the source language and in all target languages.

In this webinar, you will learn how easy it is to get started with terminology work using the TermStar terminology management system as an integrated component of Transit.

Agenda

To start, you will see how easy it is to create a new database and dictionary. With this dictionary you will learn more about structures and fields that you can use in your terminology work.

Next, we put this into practice by viewing, searching, filtering, and editing terminology.

Finally, we will show you various useful key combinations that will make your (terminological) life easier.
