TSS 2006 Vienna in a nutshell

The Terminology Summer School which has been initiated by TermNet’s sister organization Infoterm more than 20 years ago has since become a regular annual event, taking place during one week every year from June to August in varying locations.

This year will again focus on basics in Terminology Management, thus addressing an immense demand of basic terminology skills training expressed by terminologists, translators/interpreters, professionals in the Information and Communication (ICT) Sector and language professionals.

TSS2006 offers one week of comprehensive training in the basic theory of terminology and terminology management as well as the development of skills in the work with Terminology Management Systems (TMS) during the hands-on training at a fully equipped computer laboratory.

Further benefits include the opportunity for networking with peers from all over the world as well as up-close discussion of your personal experiences and problems with some of the most renowned international terminology instructors.

This course aims at participants with little experience in terminology theory, management and skills in TMS. However, a group evaluation will be made by the instructors in order to establish the level of experience of the group members. This might lead to a splitting in the second half of the week.
