Terminology for Europe: CEF eTranslation TermBank project workshop


The eTranslation TermBank (eTTB) project workshop “Terminology for Europe” will be held on July 13, 2018 in Vienna, Austria. The eTTB project provides terminological resources to the ELRC-SHARE language resource repository and CEF eTranslation service to improve the quality and coverage of automated translation. Under a terminological resource within the project, we define a set of monolingual, bilingual or multilingual terminological data in a machine-readable form. The project aims to identify, collect, process and provide terminological resources appropriate for the three (but not limited to) sector-specific CEF DSIs: eHealth, e Justice/Business Registers Interconnection System (BRIS) and Online Dispute Resolution (ODR).

The workshop is organised by the eTTB project partners under the umbrella of the International Terminology Summer School (TSS). TSS is the leading and largest international summer school for terminology professionals with about 70 participants from 30 countries and almost every continent. TSS offers a one-week, practice-oriented training course covering a comprehensive overview of the methods and principles of terminology management. The course is taught by some of the most renowned and prominent terminology experts in the world. Participation in TSS qualifies to obtain the ECQA Certificate for Terminology Managers. TSS will be held on July 9-13, 2018 in Vienna, Austria. 

Project eTranslation TermBank is co-financed by the European Union's Connecting Europe Facility
