TermNet - International network for terminology


Teaching Localization for Global Business Readiness


10-12 December, 2007 - Lessius University College - Antwerp, Belgium

Translation curricula across Europe increasingly pay attention to localization and globalization issues. In order to meet the needs of a rapidly evolving market, EU faculties and institutes of translation and interpreting provide courses on translation technology, on website, software and documentation localization, language technology standards, and on localization in the broader sense of adapting a text, or a product or a service, to a target culture. Market needs are also met by localization courses in the framework of professional education and by company training through life-long learning and post-graduate programs.

TermNet is carrying out the following activities in this context:
