Terminology

Terminology

Terminology is a central factor in the translation process. Without clearly structured terminology, translations can be linguistically unclear and in extreme cases, incomprehensible.

The creation of guidelines and a central termbase improves the accuracy and consistency of translations by providing linguists with a set of approved terminology rules and a suite of approved terms in source and target languages.
