International Terminology Summer School 2012

This July, the international terminology network “Termnet” organized its annual one-week Terminology Summer School, where terminologist from all over the world met in order to take part in practice-oriented sessions, and to discuss new approaches in terminology work.

This year's Terminology Summer School took place at the University of Vienna and I was one of the lucky participants.

In a week with high summer temperatures of around 32° C, I had the opportunity to discuss up-to-date terminology topics and to exchange personal experiences with 60 colleagues from 26 countries - including terminologists, translators, technical writers and project managers - and I gained inspiring impressions that are very useful for our own projects.

The Terminology Summer School is intended to be a preparation course for the ECQA Certified Terminology Manager examination which will take place in September.

For detailed information on the Terminology Summer School 2012, have a look at the TermNet website:
