Intelligent Terminology and Terminology Management in the age of artificial intelligence

Mar 4, 2020 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

In this seminar you will learn how to identify, collect and organise terminology. In addition to the basics of terminology work, you will learn how companies manage and spread terminology. Through practical examples, you will discover how terminology can be made intelligent and compatible with AI. We will also discuss how terminology can be made useful for target groups other than editors and translators.
