Understanding terminology - The basics

Watch our session where Tom Imhof, Founder of Localix.biz, goes through what a termbase is, how it plugs into translation workflows and what kind of data is stored in a termbase. 

Tom describes how a terminological entry is structured and takes you through concepts and concept-orientation. Next, you will learn how adding meta-data to an entry will help to navigate the termbase, filter for certain information or decide for the correct usage of a term. He also clarifies a few concepts that are important when working with terminology, such as what a homonym is how it differs from a synonym. 

Lastly, Tom looks at why terminology work is so important for companies and organizations and what the big wins of terminology databases are.
